The popular monitor and LCD manufacturer 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.
We can't really call this a tablet and feel good about it, but in a way that is exactly what it is. With a removable stand for portability you technically could enjoy it on the couch, but that might be a challenge. The Viewsonic VSD240 comes equipped with a 24-inch 1920 x 1080p HD multi-touch display. As well as a full array of ports and options on the backside.
If you've been wishing for a massive Android device of this caliber the video below should get you plenty excited, as it's pretty neat and we're hearing ViewSonic has it coming soon. You’ll be working with HDMI via MHL, full-sized USB, Bluetooth connectivity and DVI pass-through as well. Check out the video below:
As far as Android is concerned we have a pretty stock version of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean as the OS, and the device is powered by the newer, faster 1.7 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 and 1GB of RAM. IT comes equipped with 16GB of internal storage and overall the entire device was quite fast and fluid. Even if it was odd swiping and opening apps on a 24-inch display. Being a Tegra 3 device you'll get to enjoy the NVIDIA TegraZone enhanced gaming, and I'm sure many will be looking forward to using a USB or Bluetooth enabled game controller. More details can be found here, and expect it to arrive soon for around $499.
