ViewSonic announced a new touch screen desktop display known as the VSD220 Smart Display. The VSD220 pairs a 22-inch 1920x1080 full-HD resolution monitor with a Texas Instruments dual-core, ARM-based OMAP 4 processor and the Android 4.0 operating system.
The VSD220 is designed for surfing the web, using social networks, and running Android apps. To facilitate these uses, the VSD220 offers RJ45 Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity. You'll also find a 1.2 megapixel webcam and integrated microphone on the VSD220 designed for videoconferencing and photo taking. In addition to using the display as you would a giant tablet, the VSD220 can also be used as a traditional computer display that's touch enabled.
If you choose to use the VSD220 as a traditional PC, you'll be glad to know that you can hook up a number of different keyboards and mice using one of the three included USB ports. Other connectivity options on the VSD220 include a micro HDMI port, microSD card reader, and Bluetooth connectivity. To round out the multimedia experience offered through this display, the VSD220 offers integrated SRS Premium Sound speakers.
ViewSonic is planning to offer the VSD220 Smart Display in North America in mid-to-late October for an estimated price of $399.
Nice! Only two-finger touch though. That's fine for general use, but 10-finger touch is better for audio/video recording environments. Still, nice to have for double-duty as a quick, smart display for accessing the Internet without having to power on your main system, or at those times when you do, as a nice primary or secondary touch monitor.
Lots of plugs and ports on this thing,.....it's good to see that,..........
Options are always good to have.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
