ViewSonic Introduces Windows CE-based Wireless Tablet
ViewSonic Corp. has released a new wireless computing devices, an enhanced V212 Wireless Tablet Client. This version is an update to an existing ViewSonic’s handheld device, extending its functionality, stability and ability to access PC functions such as Internet, streaming video playback and database management.

The 10-inch, touch-screen display lets users access files, data and video remotely within their wireless network through an integrated 802.11b/g connection. The V212 uses Microsoft CE.Net Framework to provide a look and feel that is similar to Windows PCs, making it easy for users to become familiar with the new technology.

Other versions of the V212 feature an optional magnetic stripe scanner to allow healthcare or retail workers to quickly capture and process patient or consumer information like drivers licenses, health insurance IDs or credit cards. The V212 can also be equipped with built-in speakers to enhance the audio and video experience away from the desktop.

ViewSonic says the V212 is perfect for home automation enthusiasts and works with all products, from light switches and thermostats to sound and video equipment. The V212 can be customized with a variety of home and audio visual software products and is now available with integrated Z-Wave technology, an industry standard for wireless home control and automation.

The V212 features a 520MHz Intel Bulverde processor, a separate video co-processor to enable streaming video playback, as well as optional integrated speakers, which combine to create the full functionality of a PC in an ultra-portable tablet. The display also includes a Li-Ion battery that provides six hours of charge, a compact flash slot for media cards, and an infrared port to communicate with other infrared terminals commonly found on TVs and stereos.

This new device is available now for a suggested retail price of US$1,499.
