ViewSonic getting into 3G smartphone game

If we sound a little cautious here, that's because the market the California-based outfit is diving into is dominated by Apple, HTC, LG, Nokia, RIM, and Nokia.

Dell aside, seems like computer peripherals maker ViewSonic also wants in on the 3G smartphone industry. If we sound a little cautious here, that's because the market the California-based outfit is diving into is dominated by Apple, HTC, LG, Nokia, and Research In Motion.

The company plans to introduce its smartphone first in China, followed by Europe and the U.S., and ViewSonic claims the phones will be a "natural extension" of its 3- to 300-inch product lineup , from handhelds to LCD TVs and projectors. We welcome competition since that would theoretically drive innovation, but we are keeping our fingers crossed on this one.
