Android-based ViewSonic ViewPad 4 phone announced

ViewSonic has announced its first phone at CES 2011: the ViewPad 4.

The company says the new device is, in fact, a tablet – but since it offers “full cell phone functionality”, runs Android 2.2 Froyo, and has a 4.1 inch WVGA display, it’s pretty much just a smartphone.

The ViewSonic ViewPad 4 features Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, A-GPS, stereo Bluetooth, ambient light and proximity sensors, 5MP photo camera, VGA video-calling camera on the front, 512MB RAM, 2GB ROM, and a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor.

(the ViewPad 4’s design reminds me of the LG GD880 Mini featurephone)

Customers will be able to buy the ViewSonic ViewPad 4 starting mid-2011. Reportedly, pricing “will be dependent upon carriers” – there’s no word on exactly which carriers, though.
