ViewSonic sent us a note today to let us know it's launching its latest 27-inch professional grade monitor -- the VP2770-LED. One of the things that sets this display apart is that it features a WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition) resolution, or 2560x1440, with 3.7 million pixels squeezed in. That's almost 80 percent more pixels than what's found on a standard Full HD 1080p display. "For professions such as digital photography, architecture, computer engineering and design where true color and total screen viewing is essential, a professional grade display can make all the difference," said Mark Lufkin, European Managing Director at ViewSonic. "Our VP2770-LED SuperClear IPS monitor is the most comprehensive... Read more...

Like many companies, Asus and ViewSonic are busy preparing for Computex 2012 which kicks off June 5 in Taiwan. In the meantime, both of these companies are teasing us with information about what we can expect to see at the show. A teaser video from Asus gives us only a few details about what Asus will be announcing. For example, the video suggests we shouldn't get set into one form, which could be a reference to Asus' Transformer line of tablets. Considering most of the video takes place in the cloud, it's possible Asus is planning to introduce some cloud-friendly features as well. Although these thoughts are only speculation at this point, we'll know in a few days—Asus promises more products... Read more...
ViewSonic wants the HD projector to be something that isn’t just for enthusiasts--in the press release below, the company pitches it as something for “professionals to pitch a business opportunity, for teachers to present multimedia, or for entertainment in the living room”--and it apparently believes it’s on to something with the Pro8300 projector, which boasts 1080p full HD resolution, 3000 lumens, and a 1.5x optical zoom lens. The Pro8300 also features BrilliantColor technology for better color and clarity, a Pixelworks PW980 image processor, dual 10W speakers, and two HDMI ports.

We first saw the VX2460h-LED from ViewSonic a few weeks ago but at the time, we didn’t know when or if this ultra-thin monitor would come to the US. Now, the company has officially announced the VX2460h-LED for the US. As you'll recall, this ultra-slim 24-inch widescreen display features advanced imaging technologies to help reduce eye fatigue. Despite a thickness of just ¼-inch, the VX2460h-LED doesn't sacrifice performance. The monitor features Full HD 1080p resolution, 2ms video response time and a 40,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

There are thin monitors, and then there's the new VX2460h-LED from ViewSonic, a panel so skinny that other LCDs make snide comments behind its back. While others are talking the talk, the VX2460h-LED is walking the walk with a svelte frame that measures a scant quarter of an inch thin, or 6.8mm if you're into the metric system. According to ViewSonic, this is thinnest profile available for a monitor this size (24 inches) and class (home consumer). It boasts a Full HD 1080p screen resolution, 2ms response time, 40,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, dual HDMI inputs, touch sensitive controls, an ECO-mode feature that supposedly results in up to 40 percent energy savings when compared to a regular...

Not too many folks can honestly take advantage of dual-SIM phones, but for Europeans (as an example) that routinely travel between Germany and Holland, having space for two native SIMs can be a major lifesaver when it comes to roaming costs, and save you a bit of hassle from swapping cards in and out. The planet's first dual-SIM phone running Ice Cream Sandwich has launched at Mobile World Congress, the ViewPhone 4e from ViewSonic, as well as the ViewPhone 5e. Dual-SIM phones are expected to grow as users prefer to carry one handset for both private and professional use. They allow the use of two services without the need to carry two phones at the same time but yet maintain separate numbers,... Read more...
