The year of the tablet continues. ViewSonic's ViewPad 10

Techstination feature for Tuesday, March 15, 2011

    The year of the tablet continues.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp,  a report on gadgets and gear.    While Apple with its iPad 2 and Motorola with its Xoom tablet have garnered most of the headlines,  there are plenty  of other choices for consumers.   One of the more unique designs is from ViewSonic,  the ViewPad 10.   VP Adam Hanin…

It has the unique facility of being a dual boot tablet, which means that it allows you to boot either into Windows 7, or you can boot into Android so you can have access to Angry Birds and all your favorite Android applications.”

On the down side,  it isn’t the new version of Android designed for tablets.   There are two USB ports, Bluetooth and WiFi.   The Windows 7 side will let you use a variety of touch screen applications as well.  Pricing starts at about 600 dollars.   When it comes to tablets, there’s much more to come.   You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
