ViewPad10pro

The ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro runs both Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Windows 7.

multitouch-Tablet-Windows-7-Live-Shots

Despite what some of those slate sellers might lead you to believe, Windows 7 is pretty terrible for tablets. I don't care if you're only interested in enterprise customers; the interface just doesn't work for a finger-based usage and Microsoft kinda knows that. And that's why they're taking so bloody long to come up with an OS that works better for tablets.
