BenQ’s CT2200 Smart Display is a 21.5 inch monitor that you can use with or without a PC. Connect the 1920 x 1080 pixel screen to your computer and you can use it as a monitor.
Or you can tap a button to switch over to Android and use the Smart Display as a large Android tablet.
BenQ introduced the Smart Display product line earlier this year, and now the CT2200 has passed through the FCC, which suggests that the company is considering selling this Android tablet in the United States.
Behind the screen the Smart Display features an ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Since this monitor is basically an oversized tablet, it has a few features you won’t find in most PC displays, including 2 USB 2.0 ports, a micro USB port, a micro SD card slot, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. It also has an Ethernet jack, micro HDMI port, and headphone jack as well as stereo speakers.
There’s also a 1.2MP camera built into the display, which you can use to snap photos, shoot video, or make video calls.
The CT2200 Smart Display measures 20.3″ x 14.4″ x 2.6″ and weighs about 11 pounds. I don’t see any mention of a battery, so I don’t think this Android device is meant to be carried around the house like a Sony Vaio Tap20 or Dell XPS 18.
But you can find a user manual and additional photos at the FCC website.
