Acer and ViewSonic agree to Microsoft patent licensing deal

Acer and ViewSonic are the latest companies to cough up their Microsoft tax, agreeing to pay the company in return for the freedom to use technologies the Windows maker has patented. Acer's agreement covers its Android devices, while ViewSonic's covers both Android and Chrome OS; we're presuming this means the company is still considering putting the Google platform on dual-boot tablets, as first suggested back at the ViewPad 100 launch.

IFA 2011 Wrap-Up

IFA 2011 has come and gone, and there's been no shortage of shiny new tech to play with. With the iPad still dominating consumer and industry mindshare, tablets unsurprisingly were a focus points for many, but there were big screens to marvel at in other segments, too.

The "e" in the name here stands for "Entry" aka "Entry-Level" meaning that it'll certainly be ViewSonic's least expensive tablet on the market for the time being. We got the opportunity to take a close look at this lovely white-bordered Android tablet and we'd just love to show you what it's all about.

ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro dual-OS Android / Windows Tablet Detailed Further

While we've been seeing this tablet pop up here and again over the past few months, it's today where we get the biggest amount of seemingly finalized information on the release of this bit of hardware. From the three-birds brand you and I have come to trust in monitor technology comes the ViewPad 10pro, a tablet capable of running Windows 7 with Android 2.3 Gingerbread as an application on top.

Many consumers will simply opt for the iPad 2 if the price of the Android tablet is close to the price of the iPad 2 just out of name recognition. What the market needs is some lower priced Android tablets that people looking to step into the tablet world can get cheaply. That is exactly what Viewsonic has offered with the new ViewBook 730 Android tablet.

ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro packs BlueStacks Android app virtualization

ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro packs BlueStacks Android app virtualization

All of a sudden, ViewSonic's new ViewPad 10Pro tablet is looking a lot more interesting. Although billed as a dual-OS slate, which led us to believe it would switch between Windows 7 and Android in the same way as the older ViewPad 10, in fact the 10Pro uses BlueStacks, the clever Parallels-but-for-Android-apps-on-Windows software we first mentioned back in April.
