ViewSonic today announced the specification details on their ViewPad 100. The device will run both Windows 7 and the older 1.6 version of Android. This is very disappointing news for the tablet.
It will be a very powerful tablet if you look down the hardware specification list:
- 10-inch screen (1024 x 600)
- Intel Atom N455 1.66Ghz
- 1GB of DDR3 RAM
- 16GB SSD
- 2 USB ports
- MiniVGA and microSD card slot
- 1.3MP webcam
All of that points towards a device very capable of running not only 2.2, but 3.0 and beyond! It still confuses me why a company would want to release a tablet with an OS that doesn’t run Flash. Especially when it could if they wanted it to. Of course for your Flash needs you could boot into Windows 7 with this device, but doesn’t that make the Android side of the device seem a bit obsolete?
