ViewSonic may be better known for producing TVs, monitors, and photo frames than computers. But the company is no stranger to small computing devices. A few years back, ViewSonic had a moderately successful line of Windows Mobile PDAs (although I think the OS was called Pocket PC at the time).
Now ViewSonic is entering the netbook market, with a product called the VieBook. To be honest, it looks pretty generic as netbooks go. While other companies are experimenting with touchcreen displays, instant-on software, and even glowing touchpads, The VieBook is an average, run of the mill Intel Atom-based netbook.
It features a 10.2 inch display, 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, a 4-in-1 card reader, a 1.3MP camera, and Windows XP Home Edition. The netbook will be available in February for around $429.
