ViewSonic dials into smartphones

Monitor maker turns phone fan

Intelligent flash storage arrays

You probably only associate ViewSonic with monitors and LCD TVs, but you’ll soon know the company for its handsets, it hopes. The firm has just announced plans to pump out smartphones.

ViewSonic’s keeping mum for now about what features its 3G smartphone range will offer. But it said the first devices will be launched in China, with European and North American rollouts planned to follow in due course.

James Chu, Chairman of ViewSonic, said smartphone production will enable the company to apply its “display technology to an even larger and rapidly growing worldwide market”.

So the firm believes its ability to make display screens makes smartphones the logical next step. Nokia tellies, anyone?

ViewSonic has yet to confirm when the first of its 3G phones will be unveiled. ®
