Scheduled for this year
In addition to the 7-inch ViewPad with Android 2.2 and "full-phone functionality", Viewsonic took the time on IFA 2010 to show a dual-boot/Intel Atom equipped tablet. Happily running both Windows 7 Home Premium and Android 1.6, this 10-inch tablet should appear this year with a sub €500 price tag.
Apart from Intel's Atom N455 CPU at 1.66GHz, the rest of the specs are pretty plain for such a device. It comes with 1GB of memory, 16GB of on-board storage, microSD card slot, GPS, 1.3M cam, accelerometer, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB and, of course, 10-inch 1024x600 capacitive touch screen.
According to Viewsonic PR, the dual-boot tablet should be available by the end of this year with the aforementioned sub €500 price tag. You can find out more here.
