Viewsonic ViewPad 10pro dual-OS tablet brings Windows and Android closer

Viewsonic has recently introduced a new version of the its tablet Viewpad, the ViewPad 10 pro. ViewPad 10pro will bring in a new era of tablets as this one boasts of a dual-OS, the first of its kind.

 

Yes, you read it right. ViewPad 10pro packs a mighty hard Windows 7 OS alongwith the favourite mobile OS by Google, Android 2.3. Viewsonic says there’s no dual booting required to power on the Android, there’s just the app integrated on the Windows homescreen to take you there. CNET tested the Android performance on the tab and says it switches from Windows to Android in just 3 seconds and Android to Windows almost instantaneously. Although i don’t know how good Windows 7 OS will prove for the tablet users, as its not quite the tablet-friendly software one would have a go for.

Another neat feature of this tab is its battery backup which is seen on none of the tablets in its competition. Viewsonic, the manufacturer of some of the most top visual displays in the world claims that the tablet can run upto 8 hours straight on a single charge. This is a great add-in on the tablet featurelist as most businessmen prefer a long running tablet which is equally efficient as well.

The one biggest con i found in this tablet is its weight. Weighing in at a hefty 800g, this tab will prove as a troublesome to carry! The key goal of any tab is that it should be easy to carry around which this tab fails to deliver. Apart from this one minor drawback everything else looks promising.

As for the specs, the Viewsonic ViewPad 10 pro is powered by a 1.5 GHz Intel Atom Z670 processor, 1024×600 capacitive touch screen, Intel GMA 600 graphics card, 2GB in-built memory, expandable upto 32 GB via microSD slot, 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for video conferencing, HDMI port for 1080p media playback, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and a USB port too.

VERDICT: My verdict on this device is that if you are a user who likes Windows 7 and wants to migrate from a desktop to a touch screen interface and want to enjoy the combined feel of an Android device then i would say give it a go! Don’t look back, this might be just the tab you were looking for and also the battery backup this tab offers is more than OK.

PRICE and RELEASE: ViewPad 10pro is available in two models,

  • the first one which comes with Windows 7 Professional, Android 2.3 and a 32 GB SSD drive is priced at $699
  • the second one features a Windows 7 Home Premium, Android 2.3 mobile OS and 16 GB SSD which is priced at $599

The product is ready to be released late this august. Want to be the first one to grab hands on it? Then subscribe to our feed and we will update you quick enough.

wwdc-2011

According to engadget, the team will be focused on its latest software enhancements and also its release of the newest, MAC OS X Lion operating system. This is gonna be a big day because some folks at Buzzle are already regard this as a clash between Apple and the Android developers since Google already launched its latest Android OS the “Ice Cream Sandwich” just this month. The release will be done by Steve Jobs himself along with other executives.

ios5-2011

The launch of iOS 5 is creating a major buzz for the Apple users. Some customers are already creating a wishlist of what improvements they would like to add in the new release. If you want to know what other people are thinking, browse through this gallery as BusinessInsider brings it to you. Regarding the iOS 5 features, this time it will introduce voice control to type the text automatically and widgets too possibly to compete with the Android, as we have seen Android OS is full of widgets. Of course, there will be integration of NFC chips and Cloud computing (Google wallet and iCloud respectively). GET IT? Other than these there’s a fully redone user interface and addition of an updated camera app (iPhone 4S will have a 8-megapixel camera), thats why!

Mac_OS_X_Lion-2011

Coming to MAC OS X Lion, this is going to be a major concern at the WWDC this time. According to CNET, the poor MAC OSX Snow Leopard was already being hit by a rogue antivirus causing a MAC malware scare so you will possibly see the release of a software update for SL. Moving on, there is a pretty nice featurelist we are going to see in Lion this time, some of them being, introduction of Wi-Fi Direct, wireless iTunes sync capability, Finder,Mail,AirDrop and iCal improvements.

icloud-2011

iCloud service being new one on the line, we have not been able to gather much news about it but our reporters at CNET say that Apple will integrate “music features” with the Cloud support. Already deals have been made with the music giants such as EMI Music, Warner Music and SONY Music.

Here is an official PRESS RELEASE made by Apple.

All you have to do is go to a DELL or a HP retailer, choose any PC above $699 price, and present your .edu email address, in case you dont have a .edu email id, just present them your student ID.
