ViewSonic unveiled its Tablet PC prototype that is designed to deliver the benefits of a portable PC, and has the added convenience of pen, speech and keyboard input to take and convert handwritten notes, manage tasks and access data from remote locations.
According to the company, its Tablet PC 1100 builds on the proven feature set of the ViewPad 1000-2, ViewSonic’s recently launched Tablet PC with Windows XP Pro, which combines full-screen viewing along with portable wireless computing, and includes a more extensive hard drive (20 gigabytes) and memory (256 megabytes).
In addition, the company unveiled other new products:
The VP2290b, a 9.2 mega pixel (27.2 million RGB dots) LCD display that is designed to offer up to ten times the pixel density of typical LCD displays. The 22.2-inch VP2290b promises to produce photo-like images for use in applications where clarity is essential, such as medical reference, engineering design, digital content creation, satellite image analysis, and film editing and restoration.
Four additions to the VX Series of LCD displays-the 17-inch VX700, the 18-inch VX800, the 19-inch VX900 and the 20-inch VX2000-which may be ideal for applications such as computer-aided design, video editing and gaming.
Four new VG Series displays for graphic users. Ranging in size from 15-inches to 18-inches, the VG500, VG700, VG750 and VG800 may bring additional performance and affordable prices to corporate, SOHO, gaming and government users.
Three upgrades to the VE Series-the VE500, VE700 and the VE800-which bring more value to small office/home office, corporate, education and government users by incorporating features that provide enhanced convenience, security and space saving options.
