ViewSonic announced its second-generation smart display today, the 24-inch Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-based VSD24.
The device acts either as a stand-alone tablet, powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3 (not 4) chip, or as a standard monitor. It has an integrated 2-megapixel front-facing camera and microphone, as well as speakers to enable video conferencing. Unfortunately though, its dual-point touchscreen will not be able to handle all of your fingers, but I guess you don’t need to use all of ’em at once. In fact, this device is primarily targeting vertical markets such as SMB, education, POS, hospitality and more.
