MWC 2011: ViewSonic reveals ViewPad 10pro

The incorporation of Windows 7 alongside Android may help this device appeal more to the business user.

ViewSonic

ViewSonic may have only just launched new devices at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) back in January, but the company saved a tasty little business morsel for this week's Mobile World Congress (MWC) event.

The ViewPad 10pro is a 10.1in tablet device designed for the corporate user. It runs dual operating systems of Windows 7 and Android but, unlike the previous edition, users can switch between the two in just one second thanks to a soft-button on the home screen.

"Windows 7 is far from perfect for the consumer, but for business it makes this tablet more [accessible] for users," Derek Wright, product marketing manager in Europe for ViewSonic, told IT PRO.

"It is almost a dream for IT professionals wanting to include a portable device into their business network."

Weighing in at 800g, it is a little heavier than some of the more consumer-focused tablets launched at MWC, but with Intel's Oak trail 1.5GHz processor and full sized USB ports, it might be more tempting.

Other features of the tablet include a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for video calls, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot for a further 32GB and 1080p video playback.

Wright gave us a preview of the tablet, which is due to launch in May, so check out our video below for a better look at the ViewPad 10pro.
