ViewSonic has been producing mid-range tablets with fairly decent specs for a long time now. Last we heard from the manufacturer was at CES early this year, with their Tegra 3-powered 24-inch "tablet" display. Now ViewSonic has unveiled another tablet, although in a more portable size.

IFA 2011. We have both the dual-boot Android 2.3 and Win 7 ViewPad 10pro, and the 7" ViewPiad 7x Android 3.2 Tablet. We confirmed these back in May and they are headed to the shelves soon.
ViewSonic has refreshed its Android tablet range, with the new 7-inch ViewPad 7x offering Honeycomb on a 1024 x 600 touchscreen, while the 10.1-inch ViewPad 10Pro gives a choice of Froyo or Windows 7 on an Intel Oak Trail Atom processor. The ViewPad 7x - which leaked earlier this month - has a Tegra 2 processor and twin cameras, along with along with HSPA+, HDMI and DLNA support. It weighs 380g and has a microUSB port and an LED flash. As for the ViewPad 10Pro, that has a 1.5GHz Intel Oak Trail Z670 processor along with WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and all the usual features you'd expect from an x86 tablet. Unfortunately ViewSonic's decision to go with Android 2.2 rather than Honeycomb looks likely to hurt the 10Pro's reputation. No word on pricing or release dates at this stage. [via SlashGear]
