ViewSonic Tips 22-inch Android Tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich

Paul Lilly

If the motto to live by is 'Go big or go home,' don't bother putting out a dinner plate for ViewSonic. The company has chosen to go big in the tablet market, teasing a ginormous 22-inch Android powered slate rocking what looks to be Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, at least until Jelly Bean (Android 5.0) comes out later this year.

Our friends at Engadget got their mitts on a Computex invitation from ViewSonic, which teases the 22-inch "smart business tablet monitor" as part of its Touch and Connect series. Other than the screen size and partial shot of ICS, ViewSonic is keeping tight lipped, choosing not to reveal any other hardware specs or special features.

Still, we can ponder whether a 22-inch tablet is simply too big, or an awesome display of where technology is headed. On one hand, the trend has been towards smaller sized tablets in the 7-inch category, though part of that has been out of necessity in terms of lower costs. At the same time, a 22-inch screen size opens up new possibilities on the business side for presentations and notebook-like productivity, provided you supply a Bluetooth keyboard.

What are your thoughts on a 22-inch tablet form factor?
