[CES 2012] Viewsonic feels that they have a good chance in the Latin America market by making a move to introduce the ViewPhone 3 in that part of the world sometime in Q2 2012. Underneath the hood lies an 800MHz ARM11 processor, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the operating system of choice. Sporting a 3.5″ HVGA TFT touchscreen display, the ViewPhone 3 will also feature Dual SIM support, FM support, GPS navigation capability, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, a miroSD memory card slot, and a 5-megapixel camera.
No idea on how much exactly it will cost, although there is a target price of $250 to $299 – only time will tell just how much Viewsonic intends to charge. One of the main selling points of the ViewPhone 3 would be ViewScene 3D, where this customized user interface delivers an intuitive interface which intends to enhance the Android experience, although it remains to be seen whether it is as polished as HTC’s Sense UI or Samsung’s TouchWiz. I personally think the Dual SIM function rocks my socks off – frequent travelers would love this feature, since you can always leave your own SIM inside and pop in a local SIM card when abroad, helping you save tons on phone calls when overseas.
