Secondary LCD monitors are growing in popularity. Mimo Monitors seems to come out with a new version every couple of months, and more companies are beginning to create similar rivals. And Samsung, for example, is taking the product category to an entirely different platform.

If you thought the Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds laptop was an impressive design win with its secondary, slide-out display, then you ain't seen nothing yet... Today, Sharp has announced the latest addition to its Mebius line of portables--the Mebius PC-NJ70A netbook--which features a trackpad that also happens to function as a 4-inch multi-touch-capable LCD-based display.
