ViewSonic announced it will show off some new mobile devices at next month's IFA 2010 in Berlin. This includes the 7" ViewSonic ViewPad, an Android-based tablet, and a currently unnamed 10" slate device that offers dual-boot between Android and an unspecified Windows operating system (perhaps Windows Embedded Compact 7).
In fact, ViewSonic are being far more open about their smaller slate’s abilities than their larger model. The ViewPad 7 will have assisted GPS, Bluetooth, a G-sensor, USB and a microSD card slot, as well as access to an on-device app store. It’s unclear whether this is the Android Market, though; the company only says that there are “thousands of applications” to choose from. Earlier this month, a talkative ViewSonic employee revealed the company’s Android 2.2 tablet plans, suggesting a UK price between £300 and £400 ($478 to $637) and a launch in less than two months time.
