ViewSonic to launch 3G smartphones in Asia, Europe and the Americas

Most of the major LCD / TV manufacturers also make phones and smartphones: we’ve got Samsung, LG, NEC and even Acer.

Now ViewSonic announced it wants to enter the smartphone industry too.

The California-based company gave little details about its upcoming smartphones, although we do know that they’ll have 3G connectivity and they should be first launched in China. After China, Europe and the Americas will follow.
 
ViewSonic says that, nowadays, consumers want smartphones with

“larger screens, greater color saturation and contrast to take advantage of new services such as mobile Internet, television and video applications, gaming and eBooks.”

Of course, we already know this, but all the above-mentioned capabilities will probably be featured in ViewSonic’s smartphones, since the company talks about them.

So I guess we should expect the first ViewSonic smartphone to be Web and multimedia-centric.

Sadly, there’s no word yet on when exactly we’re going to see a ViewSonic smartphone in stores.
