ViewSonic has all sorts of goodies for us at Computex this time around, including new tablets galore. The company unveiled their 10-inch, dual-booting Windows 7/Android 2.2 ViewPad 10Pro along with their 7-inch, dual-core ViewPad 7x with Honeycomb. Actually, dual-boot might be the wrong term for the ViewPad 10Pro. The 1.5GHz Intel Oak Trail tablet actually virtualizes Android on top of Windows, making switching back and forth between the two operating systems quick and painless. Other specs for the 10Pro include 32GB of storage and 1080p playback (you can get 4.5 hours of said playback thanks to the 3500mAh battery).

The ViewPad 7x is another tablet claiming to be the world’s first 7-inch Honeycomb slate, and runs at 1024×600 pixels. It comes with a NVIDIA Tegra 2 clocked at 1GHz and features HSPA+ connectivity. Pricing and release details are not available for either new tablet at this time.
