ViewSonic Announces 24-Inch Smart Display Tablet


ViewSonic has announced the VSD240, an Android-powered 24-inch Smart Display tablet, at CES. Scheduled for a release in April with a price tag of $499, the device sports a 24-inch 1,920x1,080-pixel-resolution HD LED screen. It runs on Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

Powered by a 1.7GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the VSD240 includes both HDMI and USB ports, as well as SD card storage and a 1.3-megapixel camera. The Smart Display of the VSD240, which joins the 22-inch VSD220 in ViewSonic's Smart Display slate, can be utilized as a monitor for a more traditional PC experience, with users able to connect keyboards and mice via USB Bluetooth or wireless connections.

    I've seen something similar on sale at newegg. Basically the reviewers say that the concept of a giant Android monitor is awesome, but in practise, doesn't work well at that size

    I like it, but imagine it would be difficult to use unless you have a place to set it down. Guess it's a lap-tablet.

    Shin-sanBasically the reviewers say that the concept of a giant Android monitor is awesome, but in practise, doesn't work well at that sizeI have a hard time imagining how I would use that as a table(t) too.... much too large (and presumably heavy) to comfortably hold with one and while using with the other, putting it on a table would make it much to high to use without spraining shoulders for extended use, leaving it flat on a table for reading woould likely lead to sore neck, etc.

    As a kiosk display, picture frame or similar appliances (or used as a not-so-conventional PC or PC display), I suppose it would do nicely.

    I know I personally wouldn't want to pay a $250 premium to slap a Tegra3 into a $250 display.

    it would be awesome to see someone making/taking calls with this held-up to the side of their face.. i've already seen some people make calls with other tablets and that was funny, this would be epic..
