Pitched as an all in one PC “smart display” it is essentially a monitor – something ViewSonic knows a lot about – with Android stirred into the mix.
The VSD220 is ViewSonic’s new “Smart Display” as we were informed partially somewhere back in May, & it doesn’t just act as a PC/notebook/tablet monitor, yet features a full fledged Android operating system to boot. Isnt that WOW….????
Part monitor & part tablet, the all-in-one features a modest dual-core TI OMAP4 processor, along with an optical multi-touch display (in lieu of traditional capacitive finger tracking).
It has a 22-inch display, with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. The Smart Display is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich & comes with 8GB of internal storage with the option to expand storage via micro SD, features stereo speakers with integrated microphone, headphone jack, 1.2MP webcam, 2 full sized USB ports, 1 micro USB port, WiFi, ethernet & Bluetooth.
It’s wall mountable & although fairly thin, at approximately 10lbs.
ViewSonic lists the new product with a price tag of $543 though it’s out of stock at the moment. Moreover, we’re hearing the price might go down to $400.
