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.
