Viewsonic is coming up with a tablet that can give Acer’s Aspire One D255 dual-boot netbook a run for its money. Like the Acer AOD255, the new Viewsonic ViewPad runs both Android and Windows 7 Operating systems. The specifications on the device include a 10″ LED display that renders content at 1024×600 pixel resolution, an Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz processor, a 1GB RAM and 160GB of hard drive storage. The device is equipped with a G-sensor, A-GPS and a 1.3-megapixel camera. Connectivity through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are available as well.
A deal breaker probably is the version of Android OS running on the ViewPad – Android 1.6. If you look at it, new tablets running advanced OS versions are already being released and there is not much possibility of a future upgrade on offer as well.
But that apart, I think this is a good piece of hardware that is worth more than just a cursory look.
