Mimo. Forgot about those guys? They're back! While the "secondary monitor" isn't nearly as predominant as it once was, USB-powered monitors aren't vanishing. In fact, Mimo's pushing them to the next level. The company just launched Magic Touch, described as the world's first-ever USB
-driven capacitive touchscreen monitor. Yep, touchscreen-based. It's slated to ship in the middle of next month, and it will be available in two models. There's the standard Mimo Magic Touch which offers a single USB 2.0 connection for both connectivity and power; and the Mimo
Magic Touch Deluxe, which adds two convenient USB ports to act as a mini-hub to connect other peripherals, along with a separate AC adapter to re-charge or drive high-power devices plugged into the USB hub, when needed.
Like other products in the MimoMonitors.com line of USB mini-monitors, the Mimo Magic Touch also allows users to de-clutter their crowded, primary desktop monitor and offload popular business applications such as web browsers, Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Word, Skype, and instant messaging. For personal use, the Mimo Magic Touch can act as a great peripheral monitor for social networking, iTunes and media players, chat windows, online auctions, stock tracking tools, fantasy sports dashboards, and more.
Compact and versatile, the Mimo Magic Touch screen is less than 1-inch thick and weighs under 1lb, while featuring a best-in-class 1024 x 600 resolution – offering sharp graphics and clear images for video, multi-media design, and a full range of business needs. It is fully compatible with Windows 7, and can act as a display-only monitor with Windows Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS.
Pre-orders for the first shipment of Mimo Magic Touch 10" mini-monitors are now being accepted at www.mimomonitors.com for delivery before Christmas to US-based customers. The standard Mimo Magic Touch is priced at $299.99, and the Mimo Magic Touch Deluxe is priced at $329.99.
