Walnut, Calif. – ViewSonic today introduced its first Smart Display, which runs on Android and is powered by an ARM processor.
The company is not calling the VSD220 Smart Display an all-in-one PC — a category it is now in the process of withdrawing from — but instead an interactive display.
The dual-touch 22-inch display has a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 and runs on a Texas Instruments dual-core OMAP 4 processor and has the Android 4.0 operating system.
Although it has many tablet-like features, a ViewSonic spokesperson said the Smart Display is really a secondary monitor. It is not portable and connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
It also has three USB ports, a MicroSD card and Bluetooth. There is a 1.2-megapixel webcam and integrated microphone along with SRS Premium Sound speakers.
The Smart Display is expected to ship in mid to late October for $399.
