Hey, who said we need to stick with just one operating system? Viewsonic is already working on a dual-bootin’ Android tablet that will be able to also boot Windows.
I think this is a great idea as the tablet becomes more useful in many ways and I’ve like to see even Ubuntu being triple-booted, that would make Android tablets not only great as media devices but as portable servers.
ViewSonic will show off a 7-inch Android tablet at IFA called the ViewPad 7, alongside an Intel-based 10-inch tablet that will dual-boot Windows and Android.
The Californian manufacturer is keen to resurrect the ViewPad brand, which was operating as far back as 2002, and hopes that its latest offerings can impress when they are shown off at IFA.
“The ViewPad 7, a 7″ Android tablet with 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, access to thousands of applications and front and back-facing cameras will be previewed for the first time in Europe,” said ViewSonic’s release.
