No way. Not even pretending to be possible. Not out of the box anyway. The origin of the title of this post comes directly from our pals over at TUAW, that Apple blog, where they’ve identified a rather large mistake in the press materials sent out by Viewsonic today with the ViewPad 10. The application you see here, on the tablet shown in the release for the ViewPad 10, is PowerPoint for Mac. This isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened with press materials and it isn’t the last, but since this tablet already runs Android and Windows, heck, why not another?
It’ll be the people responsible for editing the photos released with this tablet that are about to have red cheeks here. The photographers aren’t to blame, on the other hand, as this application essentially cannot operate on Windows or Android, and even if it could, it really would make less than a lot of sense to use it to display the capabilities of this Windows / Android tablet. You silly guys n gals.
See the rest of the epic public relations story involved in this device (or devices) back in the post Viewsonic ViewPad 10 Dual-boot Android / Windows 7 Tablet Available Today it is there that you’ll also learn about the secret ViewPad 10 Pro which is said to feature Android 2.2 Froyo instead of the 1.6 this regular ViewPad 10 has running. How about that? All the details will be yours.
