Viewsonic is launching a refresh to its ViewPad 10, called the ViewPad 10Pro. Boasting of the ability to dual-boot Windows 7 Pro and Android, the tablet actually will use Bluestacks virtualization to run Android apps on Windows 7 - while this maybe better than dual-booting in a way, it is not dual-booting, and can suffer from lowered performance, battery life issues, etc.,. We'll have to wait and see how Viewsonic ended up implementing it.

The device will apparently be the first of the many tablets supposed to be powered by Intel's new Oak Trail mobile processors (in this case, the Z670 1.5GHz) this year. It will sport Windows 7 Pro, and Android 2.2 virtualized, but hopefully, Honeycomb will be offered instead, though we wonder if Google will be especially appreciative.

Other features include a 3G radio, and 32GB of onboard storage, which can be expanded a great deal more with microSD card, or USB drives. It sports a 3500mAh battery, which is promised to deliver up to 4.5 hours of 1080p video playback via HDMI.

We expect Viewsonic to make a more detailed presentation at the Computex 2011 trade show, so stay tuned for more details.
