Budget-friendly ViewSonic ViewPad 10i tablet offers dual-booting
ViewSonic launched its second dual-booting tablet device for an affordable price
Devices running both Android and Windows are certainly starting to expand their influence on the market. So far such hybrids haven’t been as budget-friendly as we would have wanted and it’s high time before cheaper alternatives launched. For that matter, the team between ViewSonic has just launched its second dual-booting tablet device for an affordable price that won’t break your bank account.
The highlight of the ViewSonic ViewPad 10i is the Inter Celeron N2910 powerhouse. Although this might sound like an old Intel Celeron processor, it’s not. In fact, the chip is a current generation member of the recently launched Intel Bay Trail line and it offers some pretty decent processing power. The tablet will rock this quad-core Celeron processor coated at 1.6GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM. Furthermore, the device offers some decent 64GB built in storage, and with all being said, it’s like having a mid-tier portable computer at your disposal.
Unfortunately, the rest of the hardware pack isn’t that impressive, but overall the featured hardware surpasses the suggested price. The weakest link in the pack is the 10.1-inches display with screen resolution of 1280×800 pixels, which isn’t very up to standards in 2014 and furthermore, the camera set consists of 2 units of 2-megaixel snappers. Well, who uses a 10-incher for taking photos anyway? The tablet, on the other hand, can offer you at least 6 hours of power without recharging thanks to its 7000mAh battery and everything else required for a mid-tier tablet: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity support, USB, HDMI, a microSD card slot.
In terms of software, this is where we got a real deal. ViewSonic ViewPad 10i is running both Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Windows 8. So far, the tablet is available only in the online stores. Unlike other dual boot options on the market, the device is pretty cheap, priced at around $500.
