ViewSonic ViewPad 100 with Android and Windows

ViewSonic has gone and released the first tablet with both Windows and Android operating systems.

The ViewSonic ViewPad 100 is the first tablet to feature a dual-boot capability in which it can run both Android 1.6 and Windows 7 Home Premium.

The tablet is probably the most powerful we've seen at IFA so far with a Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM and a 10-inch 1024x600 LED display. This of course is hardly surprising as the ViewPad 100 has its work cut out thanks to the two operating systems that run on the device. Firstly Android so users can quickly and easily browse the web and perform basic media functions, whereas the full force of Windows Home 7 then allows more complex tasks to be performed.

It's an incredibly clever idea, take two operating systems that both have different strengths and simply pop them on the same device giving users the choice. In terms of connectivity it'll serve up WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and have two USB 2.0 connections, whilst also featuring a front facing webcam presumably there for voice calls as at 1.3MP it's not going to be able to handle much more.

Just putting it out there now, the price is considerable at £549, however ViewSonic consider that as a ceiling for how much rather than a starting point. Expect full hands-on and more pictures straight from Berlin later on so stay tuned to T3.
