ViewSonic has officially launched the ViewPad 7x, the company's 7-inch Android Honeycomb tablet leaked earlier this month, along with bringing its new dual-booting 10-inch slate, the ViewPad 10Pro.

Viewpad 10 crashes tablet party with Atom N550 in tow

If you are into tablets that run Android at all you probably are aware of the Viewpad 10 from the first time we talked about it back in November 2010. The little tablet surfaced with an Atom N450 CPU and Android as the OS. If you like the style and idea of that tablet but found yourself wishing that it ran Windows and had more CPU oomph you will like the version that has now surfaced.

ViewSonic's ViewPad 10 is the bigger, dual-boot sibling to the all-Android ViewPad 7, offering a choice between Android or Windows 7 in one, 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen slate.  Back at IFA 2010 it was still known as the ViewPad 100 and all the company had to show was a rather unstable prototype; now, with the full launch expected on November 15 priced at £449 and with the same trade-in discount scheme as the ViewPad 7, we caught up with the ViewPad 10 to see if its dual-personalities had bedded in.

ViewSonic announced official pricing and availability for their ViewPad 7 Android slate this morning, and we grabbed some hands-on time with the one production model running final software the company had on hand.  It's thankfully a slicker, more stable experience than the prototype we saw at IFA 2010, with Android 2.2 Froyo moving quickly on the ViewPad 7's 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor.  More details, together with benchmarks and pricing, after the cut.

Viewsonic Viewpad 7 pre-orders open for Nov 15 UK debut

Viewsonic Viewpad 7 pre-orders open for Nov 15 UK debut

If the fast-approaching Galaxy Tab is too rich for your blood, how about a 7-inch Android slate for a couple hundred less; Viewsonic's Viewpad 7 is roughly the same size as the Samsung, but has gone up for pre-order in the UK at £399.99 ($634) versus the Galaxy Tab's £529.99.  Your money gets you a lower resolution display (800 x 480 versus 1024 x 600) and a slower processor, but for many the cost saving - itself likely to increase as more vendors start offering the Viewpad 7 - might push the slate into impulse-buy territory.

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic's second tablet is more of a work-in-progress than the ViewPad 7, with the ViewPad 100 being a 10-inch dual-booting Android/Windows 7 tablet that's still undergoing plenty of finessing. With a 1024 x 600 two-point multitouch capacitive touchscreen, Atom N455 processor and 1GB of DDR3 memory, it makes for a reasonable netbook replacement (as long as you don't mind losing the hardware keyboard) but, thanks to the presence of Android, also doubles as a quick-loading multimedia player and general entertainment slate.

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 hands-on [Video]

With a sub-£350 price tag for a 7-inch Android 2.2 Froyo tablet, with 3G voice and data, a capacitive touchscreen and digital camera, we were wondering where the catch was with the ViewSonic ViewPad 7. Having used the compact slate at IFA 2010 this morning, we're still left searching for the compromise: on the face of it, you're getting much of what Samsung is delivering with the Galaxy Tab, only at (perhaps) half the price.
