We’re not sure exactly how much success ViewSonic got from the dual-booting ViewPad 10 late last year (apparently, the Android 1.6 OS it came with didn’t make it so hot), but they’re at it again. ViewSonic has just introduced the ViewPad 10Pro, which, like the original ViewPad 10, also loads both Windows and Android operating systems, but with a more “professional” angle.
How’s that? Well, this thing’s more reasonably better-updated, being able to load both Android 2.2 or Windows 7 Professional. Specs include a 10-inch, 1024 x 600 LED-backlit multi-touch screen, 3G, Wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a battery that’s rated to last for up to six hours, and a system that’s centered on Intel’s Oak Trail processor.
ViewSonic has also announced the V350 smartphone. This one runs on Android 2.2, sports a 3.5-inch screen, a 5MP cam, microSD slot, Wi-fi, Bluetooth and A-GPS, but here’s what sets it apart from a handful of other phones with the same spec: it comes with a dual-SIM feature for tuning in to two active networks. Should be handy for traveling. Or for switching between the best rates for voice or data across two carriers.
Pricing and availability wasn’t announced for both devices, but Viewsonic also mentioned showing off the ViewPad 10S 3G (which is assumed to be the ViewPad 10S with a 3G connection) during the MWC. [via Engadget]
