ViewSonic announces new ViewPad 10pro, Windows/Android hybrid tablet

ViewSonic announces new ViewPad 10pro, Windows/Android hybrid tabletViewSonic is no stranger to the tablet game, and it fired out a press release earlier this week detailing its latest ViewPad tablet.

The ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro promises seamless switching between Windows 7 and Gingerbread (Android 2.3), and is one of the first tablets to rock the new 1.5GHz Intel Atom processor Z670.

“We listened to our customers,” explained Michael Holstein, VP of ViewSonic’s business development. “We made the ViewPad 10pro dual OS interface as quick and intuitive as possible, while partnering with industry CPU leader Intel to deliver the latest in design and innovation across all fronts.”

It’s a good thing they didn’t listen to the people telling them to make it slow and unintuitive, with a 600MHz processor.

“The new Intel Atom processor-based tablet from ViewSonic is a cool, and distinguished product that brings a personalized and flexible experience,” said Intel guy Bill Kircos, general manager of marketing for its Netbook and Tablet Group.

“Our Intel platform supports multiple operating systems, and this tablet shows how consumers can move between Windows and Android experiences in a way that offers rich graphics, high-definition audio, easy Internet browsing and longer battery life in a slick form factor.”

Over in the States, Yanks can pick up the 32GB ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro with Windows 7 Professional and Gingerbread for $699, or the 16GB model with Windows 7 Home Premium and Gingerbread for $599.
