Viewsonic Viewpad 10 and 7 Pre-Registration is Live.

Updated on 14 October 2015 by

Notice something about that headline? It’s no longer the Viewpad 100, it’s the Viewpad 10. (Which makes sense as @thDigitalReader just pointed out to me)

More interesting news is that the pre-registration page is open. It doesn’t give any information on availability but at least you’ll be first to get the information when it’s available.

Note that the page is a UK-focused one which is as expected. The Viewpad will probably roll out in the UK before other countries. As there’s no hardware keyboard, that should be a fairly quick process. (I expect Germany and U.S. to be close behind.)

Finally in an official message we just received we have confirmation that the Viewpad 10 is using an N455 CPU and not the N550 as reported by some retailers and relayed by some blog posts yesterday.

We’re working on a review device and hope to have more news for you soon.

    When will manufacturers get smart and make these processor’s upgradable. I’d pre-order the viewpad 10 and stand by the mailbox to get it. All just to put a nice dual core atom in there.

    Flexibility is one thing you don’t get if the device has an optimized form factor and battery life.

    same story all my life.

    Someone has to launch now. Look as the MSI pad – waiting to get better technology. You can’t just pop it in – it takes months of getting the supplier/testing/optimizing etc. If you want a dual core you’ll have to wait – look at how many netbooks there are with them…. not many yet.

    The N550 is ready, but gets too hot and lowers battery life.
    Smaller, slimmer jeopardizes such ideas.
    Wit the Z6xx coming…with new mainboard required.

    ViewPad 10 is the same OEM product as TESO Lpad L10 in China, or TEGA V2 in Australia. Let’s see the competitiveness on pricing compared with same product of different brands.

    Message is true- no other Pinetrail CPU.
    Even N475 is getting too hot in such slim devices. N550 adds 50% more heat. Also more heat means lower battery.
