ViewSonic puts Windows 7, Android on 10-inch tablet

The new tablet lacks 3G, and is best suited for use at home or the office

On Friday, ViewSonic launched its second tablet during the Internationale Funkaustellung (IFA) trade show in Berlin. The ViewPad 100 runs Windows 7 Home Premium and Android version 1.6.

The ViewPad 100 is a Wi-Fi only tablet that comes with 16GB of storage and a Micro SD slot for another 32GB. An Intel Atom N455 1.66Ghz processor powers the tablet and the screen has a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.

Additional features include Bluetooth, A-GPS (Assisted-GPS) and a 1.3-megapixel webcam.

The already announced ViewPad 7, which sports a 7-inch screen, version 2.2 of Android and 3G -- is still its flagship model, according to ViewSonic. The ViewPad 100 is a product you use at home or in the office, and the ViewPad you can bring with you, it said.

The ViewPad 100 will be available in October for approximately £549 (US$845). The ViewPad 7 is expected to cost no more than £350.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
