ViewSonic broke through a bit of the iPhone 5 news on Wednesday when it introduced a compelling new product: the VSD220 Smart Display. As its name implies, the Smart Display features a 22-inch screen, with a 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
So what’s it for? Basically running Android applications and browsing the web. It doesn’t need to be a consumer-specific product, however. ViewSonic imagines it being used by vertical markets for hospital signs, kiosks and points of information.
“At home, at work and at play, consumers across all levels of the computing market demand full-HD capabilities, rich user interfaces, robust interactivity and other compelling features,” Texas Instruments business development manager Ketan Malani said. “With our OMAP 4 processor at its core, the Smart Display delivers all this and more, in a way that revolutionizes how and where people experience the Web.”
The VSD220 Smart Display will be available in North America in mid-to-late October and will cost just $399. I’m definitely interested in seeing what it’s like playing Android games on a 22-inch touchscreen.
