In the rush of iOS based iPad2 and many Android based Tablets, somewhat notable Windows Tablets are also being released into the market. It is expected that Windows 8 OS will break all records of Android & iOS, but we should wait furthermore for those gadgets as Microsoft is yet to release the final version of the software.
With a Windows 7 Operating System and Android 2.3 Operating System, features a dual boot tablet known as ViewSonic ViewPad 10pi. It was showcased in CES very recently. The Tablet seems to have best specs with most popular OS equipped in it but there is a little frustrated feeling with the usage of software involved in it – only for Android lovers! The Dual–boot system in Tablet seems a little advantage in the market from consumer’s point of view.

This Windows 7 Tab has a 10.10-inches LCD capacitive IPS touchscreen display which boots a customer into a full-fledged Windows 7 experience or an instant-on Android environment.
