ViewSonic, best known for their wide range of desktop monitors, just announced the ViewSonic ViewPad 10i tablet that runs both Windows and Android.
We’ve seen renewed interest in Windows based tablets (and Windows/Android dual-boot ones for that matter) in the past few months. Indian maker Micromax announced the LapTab at the CES which does exactly that, and we also saw China’s Cube pull off something similar.
