ViewSonic was here at CES 2013 showing off a rather unique Android device. Their VSD240 is a Tegra-touting "tablet" that they are currently calling a ViewSonic Smart Display. Read on for more details on this 24-inch quad-core display running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean after the break.
ViewSonic wants to shake things up in the "tablet" market, although I'd hardly call this specific device announcement a tablet. Apparently they want to start producing some huge 22-inch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet-like devices and will be showing them off at Computex. That isn't all we can expect from ViewSonic this year either apparently.
a trio of new smartphones, one of which is the rather temptingly titled ViewPhone 4S. As you might have guessed, it's got more in common with a certain Cupertino phone than a similar name. We took a gander at ViewSonic's MWC booth to see if it could match the goose.
dual-SIM architecture that allows a phone to connect to multiple networks and use two separate phone numbers at a time. All three are probably headed to MWC in just three short days.

back in October but since then it hasn't really seen any attention. This follow up to the original ViewPad 10 is geared for the entry level crowd -- hence the e in the title but the price doesn't look to budget friendly. Viewsonic isn't one of the major players in Android and with this new tablet, that wont be changing. The ViewPad 10e had recently been spotted on Amazon for an outrageous asking price of $399.
hands-on time with it back at IFA this year. Today Viewsonic has announced that it will officially hit the shelves this month so you should be able to snag one up any day now for just $199, more details below.
update to the previous model) has a 9.7-inch, 1024 x 768 IPS display that should please just about everybody, a 1GHz processor, ample expansion jacks including HDMI, MicroSD and a standard MicroUSB port. It's got a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera for video chat, and if ViewSonic's previous Android tablets are anything to go by, the Wi-Fi slate should be priced to move as well.
V350 and then the scary ViewPad 4. Today we have the V430 Android 2.2 FroYo smartphone -- Yes sadly we said Froyo but we have hopes it might get a boost to some Gingerbread.
