FCC visited by ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro

FCC visited by ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro
The ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro tablet has made its way through the FCC and it should only be a matter of time before we see this Windows 7/Android device on shelves.

The tablet itself is undeniably odd. It has Windows 7 on-board and has a virtualized version of Android 2.2 riding on top of that. You access the virtualized Android via an icon on the Windows 7 desktop. There is no Android Market because ViewSonic wants the main focus of the device to be the Windows 7 operating system. Running the show behind the scenes is the Intel Oak Trail CPU.

It appears as though this tablet will support AT&T 3G bands in addition to traditional WiFi. We don’t know anything yet in regards to pricing and future availability, but it can’t be too long until we see this device hit the shelves. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Bummer, the manufacturer should have used one of the new AMD APU e-series processors which have a lot faster graphics and aren't that expensive..

agreed. What is even the point of putting Android on this if no market? You cant expect battery life because it will run on a virtual desktop on the tablet. They might as well just call this a Windows 7 tablet and leave the android off of it.

...I wonder if you can root the virtual Android OS... Prior ViewSonic Android tablets didn't have the Market either, but other markets are available, or you can root the tablet and have whatever you want. I don't know off the top of my head if you can download the Android Market .apk and install it, but that would resolve that particular issue
