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... Read more...
When you think of "netbook," you probably think of "Asus." When you think of "secondary monitor," you probably think "Mimo." The USB-driven monitor was practically unheard of just a couple of years ago, but Mimo Monitors has made this a respected product category in record time. Now, just about everyone seems to be looking for ways to add screen real estate, with some going so far as to install an app on their iPad that turns it into another monitor. With Mimo's new 720-F, there's no need for fancy software. Just plug this USB monitor into your machine, mount it wherever you want and enjoy seven... Read more...
Mimo has made a name for itself this year by producing a rather wide variety of secondary monitors, which are portable screens that are powered by USB and provide a nice home for your widgets, IM windows, etc. Today, the outfit has revealed the iMo Pivot touch-screen monitor, a 7" secondary monitor which features full 360-degree maneuverability.The newest mini-monitor is the first touch-screen to fall under the $200 mark (it's $129.99, if you were wondering), and it has a fully pivoting ball-and-joint 7" LCD screen onboard. It's also fully detachable from its stand and can operate in stand-alone... Read more...
At first we assumed that digital photo frames with integrated printers were just some sort of sideshow. And who knows, maybe they are. But one thing is for sure--they just keep coming and coming. The next on the list is the iMo Foto Frame Photo Printer, which is actually being sold by the same folks who engineered the Mimo line of USB-based secondary monitors. The company claims that this is the world's first patented device to combine display and printing capabilities, but we're not so sure based on the others that we've seen emerge before it. At any rate, there's a 8" 800x600 display for showing... Read more...
We're not sure we agree with introduction two similar products to close to one another from a business standpoint, but from the consumers' eye, there's nothing better to really expand your field of options. Nanovision has just unleashed its newest secondary display not even a month after debuting the Mimo 710-S. This one, labeled the 720-S, is practically the same USB monitor as the 710-S, but the standout difference is the touch panel within. Rather than giving users a screen they can only peer at, the 720-S adds touch capabilities to give owners a good reason to add oodles of fingerprints to... Read more...
We just took a look at Nanovision's Mimo 7" USB powered LCD monitor back in April, and already the outfit is preparing to ship their next generation version. For those out of the loop, these so-called Mimo monitors act as secondary displays and get their signal/power via USB. In theory, at least, users that have ran out of room on their main display can simply plug one of these in and have their music player, widgets, chat windows and other small applets running over on the side. Obviously, the display is a touch on the small side for typing up a Word document, but for small apps, it's perfect.The... Read more...
DisplayLink support has been showing up in a growing collection of display products, such as monitors, projectors, docking stations, and adapters (such as DVI-to-USB adapters). One of the display types that DisplayLink folks have been talking about for a while now, are small, 7-inch LCD panels--similar in size and shape to a digital photo frame. Such a small-format display could potentially meet the needs of those who seek the extra screen real-estate, but who either can't afford to buy another full-sized monitor or perhaps don't have the room for one. These 7-inch displays could also be the perfect... Read more...
