Viewsonic 22in Android all-in-one PC on sale for £360

The Smart Display VSD220 by Viewsonic is one of the few Android all-in-one computers on the UK market. It costs £360 at Dabs, a price similar to the Lenovo C325 AIO which features an AMD C-50 APU, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard disk drive and a raft of additional features.

The VSD220 is essentially a larger version of a tablet, which is tethered and devoid of any 3G connectivity. It comes with a dual-core system-on-chip, the TI OMAP4430, clocked at 1GHz, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB onboard storage.

There’s also a 1.3-megapixel camera, LAN port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a card reader, two speakers, SRS premium sound, three USB ports, a HDMI one, a VESA mount, Android 4.0 ICS and a three year warranty.

The main point of focus though is the 21.5in 1,920 x 1,080 two-point touchscreen display with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and an image brightness of 250cd/m2. It also houses the AIO’s hardware.

Note that the VSD220 doesn’t come with a keyboard or a mouse.

Some might argue that you could achieve the same level of control on an Android tablet, with a HDMI out controlling a traditional full HD display. There are existing Android HDMI dongles that can plug into touchscreen displays, essentially turning into the VSD220, but at a cheaper entry point.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
