ViewSonic expanded its 3D portfolio this morning with the launch of its V3D231, a new 23-inch 3D-ready LED monitor with a 2ms response time, 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio (dynamic, of course), and affordable price tag. As you might expect, ViewSonic is really playing up the ultra-fast response time, saying it's equally suited for 3D gaming and delivering broadcast quality, full-motion video.
Android tablet makers who aren't willing to compete with Amazon's upcoming Kindle Fire are likely to get burned (which is why some are choosing to focus on Windows 8-based slates instead). ViewSonic's message is 'Game on' as it introduces its new ViewPad 7e tablet with the "economical consumer in mind." And by economical consumer, ViewSonic is referring to customers willing to pony up no more than $200 for an Android slate.
If you’re on the lookout for a 3D monitor, the number of options at your disposal has just gone up by one with the launch of ViewSonic’s V3D231 LED monitor. Meanwhile, those of you who can’t stand 3D displays that require special glasses can safely add the V3D231 to the list of 3D monitors to avoid.
ViewSonic tells us its new 24-inch LED monitor (VX2451MHP-LED) is designed to compliment an Apple Mac environment, but is also appropriate "for those who appreciate good design and want something different." What's different about this display is its all white frame and stand complimented by an ultra-slim body that measures just a hair over 1.4 inches (3.6 centimeters if you want to be all metric about it).
The folks over at the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) probably thought the royalty free digital interconnect known as DisplayPort would have supplanted DVI and VGA interfaces by now, but here we are five years after it was designed and not a lot of mainstream users are ditching their DVI cables. We're still a few years away from when DisplayPort is expected to dominate the commercial desktop scene, but you can still find it on select displays, such as ViewSonic's latest large format graphics (VG2732m-LED) and professional (VP2765-LED) monitors.
Display maker ViewSonic today announced its new V3D245 model display, a 24-inch 3D LED backlit monitor with Full HD (1080p) support. The new monitor includes a built-in Nvidia 3D Vision wireless emitter and 3D Vision glasses, and comes with an HDMI 1.4 input to connect directly to Blu-ray 3D players or PlayStation 3 consoles. It also boasts integrated 2W SRS Premium Sound audio speakers.
ViewSonic appears ready to move all-in with LED backlights, announcing that "LED technology will feature in all of ViewSonic's mointors moving forward." Kicking off ViewSonic's commitment to LED displays, the company's European operations just launched a pair of new monitors aimed at two very different target audiences, including ViewSonic's flagship VX2753mh-LED, and VA2448-LED for school kids and business users.
With the widespread adoption of touchscreen displays, we figured it was only a matter of time before our desktop displays got in on the action. To that end, Viewsonic’s VX2258wm is a solid enough, if unremarkable, touchscreen monitor with 21.5-inches of real estate, a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a rated 5ms response time.

According to a leak to Pocket-Now, Google will be pushing out an update to the Android platform in April. This will be version 2.4, but will not be the rumored Ice Cream release. Rather, this will be a second iteration of Gingerbread. It is the same situation that we saw last year with Android 2.0 and 2.1 both being branches of Éclair. Apparently, this update will be all about dual-core support.
Fresh from the CES showfloor, Online Features Editor Amber Bouman checks out ViewSonic's lineup of three new All-In-One PCs. With options including a 22 inch multi-touch screen, and a Core i3 processor, these All-In-Ones are definitely worth a look. Check out the full video below:
