New ViewSonic Display Extends Tablet Screen Wirelessly

On Tuesday ViewSonic announced three displays slated to be shown this week in Las Vegas at CES 2012, one of which is the 23-inch TDi2340 universal display. The company claims that consumers can use its frameless, capacitive touch interface to connect smart phones, tablets or notebooks wirelessly for an extended desktop mode, or as a mirrored display.

Details are scarce at this point, but the description indicates there's no HDMI cabling involved whatsoever. The company reports that the TDi2340 is based on the latest ARM11 CPU with a ViewSonic-customized interface to also allow consumers to wirelessly share photos and stream media content from popular services such as YouTube and Netflix.

Wireless streaming from a smartphone, tablet, or notebook. Isn't it about time?

An additional list of specs reveal an e-IPS LED 1920 x 1080 screen, 10-point projected capacitive touch, and 802.11 b/g/n connectivity. It also features Android and Windows-based mirror or docking modes.

As for the other two displays, the ViewSonic TD2220 multi-touch LED panel features a 2-point touch interface, a 360-degree swivel and full tilt. It also comes packed with 2 USB ports an a pair of built-in 2-watt speakers.

Lastly, the 27-inch ViewSonic V3D271 3D monitor has Nvidia's stamp of approval and features a pair of Nvidia 3D Vision glasses. It also provides a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution, and dual 2-watt stereo speakers with SRS Premium Sound.

Product availability of the TD2220, TDi2340 and V3D271 is expected to be sometime during 2Q12.
