ViewSonic announces ViewPhone 5e: 5-inch screen, dual-SIM gargantuan phone
ViewSonic has just officially lifted the cover off its ViewPhone 5e: one of the first Android 4.0 handsets with dual-SIM functionality, and it's a gargantuan one with a 5-inch screen. It should be a relatively affordable option for those wanting a huge display as it only sports a mediocre 480 x 800 pixel resolution. The dual-SIM functionality hints that it will target developing markets.

The ViewSonic ViewPhone 5e arrives with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-loaded, and it’s flavored with a custom skin looking somewhat like HTC Sense with a huge clock widget on top and rounded-icons on the bottom strip. 

The ViewPhone 5e release date is set for Q3 2012, and the retail price stands at below $599 initially. Sadly, we have no further details about the processor powering this device, but we’ll update you as soon as we get them.
