One you don't see every day

The ViewSonic ViewPhone 3 is mostly headed to Latin American markets, but it will be available unlocked here in the U.S. The main attraction: a pair of SIM card holders so you can operate two phone-number identities from a single device.

Animations galore

The ViewPhone 3 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but adds a skin that includes a rotating carousel of app panels, and some interesting animations.

Specs are so-so

This is not intended to be a high-end device by the U.S. superphone standard. It has a 3.5-inch display, a 5-megapixel camera, and a 800GHz processor. (A tethering device on the back of the phone prevented me from getting a full photo.)

Not a looker

The phone looks like a thick slab of rubbery material; it's not the sharpest-looking of devices, a trait I find confusing for a phone that's to be marketed for Latin American business users. It'll be available unlocked from the company's Web site for about $280.00.
