ViewSonic has a few Android tablets up their sleve and have been teasing us with them over the past month or so, but today they are a bit more official at 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.
We first heard about the ViewPad 7x way back in early May then saw a press photo later showing just how thin they plan this device to be. The ViewPad 7x is a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 powered Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet on a 7″ display. They were planning to offer the first 7″ Honeycomb Tab but Acer beat em to it with the A100 Tab. The ViewPad 7x sports the custom 3D ViewScene skin UI over Honeycomb and will come in an 8GB version, sadly rumors suggest a $499 price tag but hopefully they’ve rethought out pricing or it might not sell too well.
Next up we have the ViewPad 10pro, while we’ve heard plenty about this already lets recap. This is a dual-boot Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Windows 7 tablet with the Intel Atom based 1.5 Ghz single-core processor. Sadly no Honeycomb here but the dual-boot properties should make more than a few users happy. It comes with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, 16 and 32GB flavors and a 10.1″ 1024×600 resolution display. Along with Android the 32GB ViewPad 10pro will be offered with Windows 7 Professional and run an EST $699 while the 16GB model will operate under Win 7 Home Premium and will cost slightly less at $599.
We should be seeing more soon on both of these tablets so stay tuned. We also are hearing about a 7e budget friendly tablet that will come later in Q4.
