The ViewPad 10Pro will run Windows 7 Professional (or Home) and Android 2.3, with users able to switch the operating system by pressing one button on the display. The tablet can do so by virtually running Android using BlueStacks technology.
Intel unveiled the chips in April, the first designs that are efficient enough to compete with ARM designs seen in most tablets and smartphones now.
The tablet has a huge 3500 mAh battery and a 1.3MP front-side camera for video conferencing.
Says ViewSonic's vice president of business development, Michael Holstein:
We listened to our customers. We made the ViewPad 10pro dual OS interface as quick and intuitive as possible, while partnering with industry CPU leader Intel to deliver the latest in design and innovation across all fronts.
In terms of pricing, the Windows 7 Professional + 32GB SSD model will sell for $700 and the Windows Home Premium + 16GB model will sell for $599. Both will be available starting next week.
