ViewSonic puts Windows 7, Android on 10-inch tablet

The new tablet lacks 3G, and is best suited for use at home or the office

On Friday, ViewSonic launched its second tablet during the Internationale Funkaustellung (IFA) trade show in Berlin. The ViewPad 100 runs Windows 7 Home Premium and Android version 1.6.

The ViewPad 100 is a Wi-Fi only tablet that comes with 16GB of storage and a Micro SD slot for another 32GB. An Intel Atom N455 1.66Ghz processor powers the tablet and the screen has a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.

Additional features include Bluetooth, A-GPS (Assisted-GPS) and a 1.3-megapixel webcam.

The already announced ViewPad 7, which sports a 7-inch screen, version 2.2 of Android and 3G -- is still its flagship model, according to ViewSonic. The ViewPad 100 is a product you use at home or in the office, and the ViewPad you can bring with you, it said.

The ViewPad 100 will be available in October for approximately £549 (US$845). The ViewPad 7 is expected to cost no more than £350.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
