ViewSonic 24-inch Smart Display tablet shows up at CES

Throughout our CES 2013 coverage, we have seen manufacturers continue the trend of pushing screen sizes larger and larger for smartphone devices and blurring the line between phone and tablet, like the 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate. These devices have nothing on ViewSonic though. How about a 24-inch Smart Display tablet? No, you won’t be pulling this out of your pocket or even your laptop case. However, if you have the need for a flat surface that functions like an Android tablet, but on a much larger scale, a ViewSonic Smart Display may be just the ticket.

The newest member of the family is the VSD240 with a 24-inch, 1920 x 1080 HD LED screen. The tablet runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1.7GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The VSD240, like its 22-inch sibling the VSD220, includes HDMI and USB ports, SD card slots, and a 1.3MP camera. Using the variety of ports, Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities, the device can double as a display for a traditional PC.

You might think a device like this might cost an arm and a leg, but ViewSonic has indicated it will be available in April for only $499.
