This afternoon, Viewsonic unveiled their latest ViewPad tablet devices, namely the ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 10. Both tablets are scheduled to be available early next week, just in time before Christmas.
Alan Chang, managing director of EMEA & Asia Pacific Region, ViewSonic says that following the Apple iPad, the company and Samsung have also announced their Android tablets at IFA trade show in Berlin, in September this year.
Chang also introduced the two tablets, ViewPad 7 that comes with phone function and preinstalled with the latest Android 2.2 (Froyo) platform, and ViewPad 10 which has dual operating systems (Windows 7 and Android 1.6). Both tablets will be available early next week at S$829 and S$929 respectively. According to the managing director, aside from the retail channels, Viewsonic will work with local telco operators to offer the ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 10 for the contract service, though no specifics were given.
Based on Intel x86 architecture, the ViewPad 10 runs both Android 1.6 and Windows 7 operating systems and comes with native multitasking, Adobe Flash support as well as camera and video chat functionality.
