ViewSonic Android-Driven Smart Display Comes in 2 Variants

October 30, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Displays, these days, come in a variety of styles and forms. From touch enabled to curved, we have seen many making their way into the tech arena.

What display manufacturing company ViewSonic has come up with of late is something much different from the ones you see today. The company’s second-generation smart display is what we are talking about.

The most significant thing about the new smart display is this: the 24-inch VSD241 is a “self-contained Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-based display”.

Further in is an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor which would put to play the local Android apps and also initiate cloud-based computing.

The VSD241 display also boasts capabilities to support HDMI so that you can connect to a notebook or a tablet. It also is spruced up with two full-sized USB 2.0 ports, a micro USB and a mini USB, and SD card storage, according to folks at Electronista .

You will also be able to have instant access and data, documents and also multimedia file transfers. Other features include integrated networking (RJ-45 Ethernet), 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support.

ViewSonic has created the new smart display in such a way that it can be paired with VESA mount and DC power support.  In fact, the VSD241 can be used both as a stand-alone or extended display. Available now in the North American marketplace, this 24-inch display comes to you for an amount of $499.

We hear ViewSonic would also bring to us a 22-inch model too, called the VSD221. Expectations are that this one would arrive in December and would carry a price tag of $399. Tell us if you are going for these.
