    ViewSonic VSD220 Android monitor review

    By 27 November 2012

    The VSD220 two things. First, it's a monitor - which is obvious, you can tell that just by looking at it. Second, it's an Android-powered all-in-one computer - which isn't obvious, and would be hard to tell by looking at it. Costing about £330, for a...

    ViewSonic VSD220 Android Smart Display pictures and hands-on

    By 11 September 2012

    The ViewSonic VSD220 is something of an oddity. Pitched as an all in one PC "smart display" it is essentially a monitor - something ViewSonic knows a lot about - with Android stirred into the mix.  ViewSonic has had some success with Android, with a...

    ViewSonic has unveiled its latest home cinema projector, and it's the first from the company that has ditched the lamp in favour of laser and LED hybrid illumination technologies. The ViewSonic Pro9000 is a Full HD projector, capable of outputting 1080p,...

    ViewSonic ViewPad P100 pictures and hands-on

    By 27 February 2012

    ViewSonic has certainly been busy on the tablet front at Mobile World Congress 2012 and, while it's all been about Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, there was a cameo from Windows with the arrival of the ViewSonic ViewPad P100 The P100 sports a Windows...

    ViewSonic ViewPad G70 pictures and hands-on

    By 27 February 2012

    The ViewSonic ViewPad E70 is the absolute rock bottom in Ice Cream Sandwich budgetry but, if not having a rear-facing camera and just a 800 x 480-pixel display is a little coarse for you, then you might want to consider the step up model, the ViewSonic...

    ViewSonic ViewPhone 4s and 4e pictures and hands-on

    By 27 February 2012

    While ViewSonic's tablets at Mobile World Congress have been familiar fare (apart from the ViewPad E100), what did rather take Pocket-lint by surprise were the Android phones the company has shown off in Barcelona. So far, the top-end ViewSonic ViewPhone...

    ViewSonic ViewPad E70 pictures and hands-on

    By 27 February 2012

    A £129 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet sounds too good to be true, but that's exactly what ViewSonic has proposed at MWC 2012 with the ViewSonic ViewPad E70. Heading down to the stand in Barcelona, we can definitely comfirm that this device exists...

    ViewSonic ViewPad E100 pictures and hands-on

    By 27 February 2012

    ViewSonic, of course, does not, and would not, ever market a tablet as the iPad 2 lite - but pick up the ViewSonic ViewPad E100 and it's hard to think of anything else. Sitting among its friends on the stand at Mobile World Congress 2012, it's all too...

    ViewSonic ViewPad 10e review

    By 19 December 2011

    There's a saying in tech that when it comes to buying the latest computer you should always spend as much as you possibly can to make sure you get something that will last you as long as possible. But with tough economic times ahead, that isn't always...

    ViewSonic V350 review

    By 9 December 2011

    The number of people with two phones in the UK is quite significant. When you factor in business users, drug dealers and people who are having affairs, it's probably a decent chunk of the market. Those people would all benefit from having a phone with...

    ViewSonic ViewPad 7e pictures and hands-on

    By 5 September 2011

    We knew that ViewSonic was going to pull the covers off another 7-inch tablet at IFA 2011 and that it was going to be a budget device. Markedly different from their slick ViewPad 7x, the 7e is fairly chunky, features a resistive display and runs Gingerbread,...

    ViewSonic ViewPad 7x review

    By 23 August 2011

    ViewSonic said they would touchdown early with a 7-inch tablet and here we have it. The ViewSonic ViewPad 7x joins a market that already seems saturated. But has the age of the 10-inch tablet passed? At 7-inches we pass into new territory, a type of device...

    ViewSonic ViewPad 7x hands-on

    By 1 June 2011

    Yesterday, the Internet was awash with pictures of the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x, but as that specific model was a pre-production unit held together with sticky tape, Blu-tack and the tears of a baby unicorn. It seemed as if that was as good as it would get...

    Viewsonic V350 dual-SIM phone design changed, we go hands-on

    By 30 May 2011

    We’ve already had our hands on the dual-SIM touting Viewsonic V350 smartphone back at Mobile World Congress in February, but gosh a lot’s happened since then. Going back to the drawing board, presumably because it wasn’t happy with the first design, Viewsonic has...

    ViewSonic ViewPad 10s 3G review

    By 28 March 2011

    The ViewSonic ViewPad 10s comes in two variants, the Wi-Fi only or the 3G version. We managed to get our hands on the 3G version of the 10-inch Android tablet looking to bring entertainment to the masses, with the added bonus of keeping you connected...
