ViewSonic’s most recent tablet plans look to bring a slate that lets you have your cake and eat it too with a new 10-inch design that will dual-boot Android and Windows. No other information on the device has been released, but the company will be showcasing the new tab at September’s IFA. While ViewSonic hasn’t been known for high-caliber portable devices, the idea of getting two for one with your operating systems well makes up for any less than stellar hardware. If it looks anything like the below-pictured 7-inch GSM Android tablet slated for the fall, we won’t be disappointed in the aesthetics, at least.

The dual-boot concept isn’t exactly new, but there has yet to be a truly awesome device that offered the feature. I hold reservations to the idea that ViewSonic would be the company to change that. Give me a dual-booting Android and OS X Tablet, and then we are talking. Yeah, I’d like to see that happen.
