ViewSonic V36 Utilizes Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 and Built in Camera

ViewSonic® Corp., a worldwide Visual Technologies™ leader, today announced its initial Windows Mobile 2003-based Pocket PC device, the V36. The product rounds out the company’s Pocket PC offerings by bringing customers a premium level multimedia PDA product at an affordable price.

The V36 uses Intel’s XScale™ 300 MHz processor for quick performance and includes 32MB of ROM and 64MB of SDRAM (36.45 user accessible) to power its 3.5 inch full-color 320×240 resolution transflective screen. At approximately one-half an inch thick and a lightweight 4.8 ounces, the product extends ViewSonic’s award-winning form factor. Also included with the product is a synchronization cable to support easy updates to users’ PCs.

At an estimated street price of $329, in addition to providing an unlimited PDA experience, the V36 also offers multimedia capabilities with an integrated 300K digital camera that allows users to take photos at resolutions up to 640×480. A removable lithium-ion battery allows for extended usage time through the option of “hot swapping” the power supply without turning off the unit.

Wireless functionality is available through the purchase of ViewSonic’s new 802.11b Secure Digital Input/Output (SDIO) card. Just larger than the size of an average thumbnail, the card weighs a mere .15 ounces and will add wireless functionality to the ViewSonic Pocket PC V36 and will sell for an MSRP of $129.

“Joining ViewSonic’s current price performance V35 and the enterprise-focused V37 products, the feature-packed V36 rounds out ViewSonic’s family of Pocket PCs,” said Marc McConnaughey, senior vice president, Visual Systems Group, ViewSonic Corp. “By adding this new SDIO wireless card, ViewSonic’s V36 and V37 PDA products bring consumers the latest wireless technology at the most competitive price points.”

“Windows Mobile 2003 software for Pocket PCs provides a great experience for wireless connectivity, messaging and all the features people have come to expect from a company like ViewSonic,” said Juha Christensen, corporate vice president of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. “The V36 adds value to the Windows Mobile 2003 software by bringing users digital photo and extended use capabilities.”

ViewSonic Pocket PCs will be available beginning in August through authorized ViewSonic resellers and retailers and are backed by a one-year limited warranty on parts and labor. An optional two-year extended warranty is also available. ViewSonic offers toll free technical support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
