CES 2011: ViewSonic to introduce tablet with phone features ViewSonic will introduce a new tablet at the upcoming CES event, one that will also include phone features.
Despite being dubbed a tablet, the device will only have a 4-inch screen, and run on the Android mobile OS.

There is no word on what processor the tablet will run on, but the company has already introduced a larger tablet which runs on the dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2.

Most notably, the tablet will be able to connect to 4G LTE networks, like the ones Verizon and AT&T are rolling out this year and next.

Dell released a 5-inch tablet/phone hybrid earlier this year, dubbed the Streak, but there are no figures on its sales.

Viewsonic's current 7-inch tablet has seen lackluster sales thanks to critical reviews of the user interface.
