ViewSonic is a company better known for making LCD products than computers. But during CES this year the company did show off a stunningly bland looking ViewSonic VieBook netbook model. I haven’t seen the mini-laptop show up at any US-based stores yet, but it looks like ViewSonic is getting ready to launch the netbook in China.
DigiTimes reports that ViewSonic is looking to expand its product line in China, with items including netbooks and notebooks. It’s not clear if the company plans to sell the same VieBook it was showing off earlier this year in China or if it has new models up its sleeve. The VieBook has a 10.2 inch display, 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 160GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, a 1.3MP camera, a 4-in-1 card reader, and runs Windows XP. ViewSonic had said the computer would begin shipping in February. Has anyone actually seen one yet?
