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 extra inches of pixels. This new display has an 800x480 resolution, 350 cd/m2 brightness, and 400:1 contrast, and it's touch sensitive as well. This one differs from many of the company's prior 7" screens by being compatible with VESA mounts, meaning that it can be easily installed on wall brackets, adjustable arm brackets, plus auto seats and dashboards. VESA adapters are easy to find, so this one's perfect for your own DIY install in that very random spot in your basement. Make your dreams come true for just $199.

Mimomonitors.com Introduces the Mimo 720-F 'Flex Screen' Touchscreen Monitor Specially Designed for Mounting Applications

USB-Driven 7" Touchscreen Monitor Allows for Easy Mounting in a Variety of Installation Options

PRINCETON, N.J., May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Mimomonitors.com, the leading online retailer of USB-driven mini-monitors, is pleased to announce the availability of its newest product, the Mimo 720-F "Flex Screen" Touchscreen Monitor.  The development of the 720-F was fueled specifically by Mimo consumer demand, as so many customers requested an easily-mountable touchscreen monitor.

Based on the popular Mimo Mobile Slider series, the 720-F comes with a VESA 75 Standard-compatible back bracket (and four screws), allowing the user to mount on wall brackets, adjustable arm brackets, plus auto seats and dashboards.  The possibilities for home, desktop, auto, retail and commercial uses are endless!

Mimomonitors.com continues to be the pioneer in bringing USB-driven displays to market, and they have grown in popularity since they allow users to de-clutter their crowded, primary desktop monitor and offload applications such as web browsers, Microsoft Outlook, Excel, and Word, plus social networking platforms like Tweetdeck, media players, chat windows, and more. Multiple vertical applications in health care, hospitality, and lottery systems have also been developed.  All Mimo and iMo monitors require just a single USB 2.0 connection for both connectivity and power – meaning no extra VGA cables or video cards.

NOW AVAILABLE:

Mimo 720-F "Flex Screen" Touchscreen Monitor – Priced at $199.00

Featuring a VESA 75 standard compatible back bracket, a 7" LCD touchscreen that boasts 800x480 resolution, 350 cd/m2 brightness, and 400:1 contrast, the Mimo 720-F can be mounted in a variety of different possible placements.

I kinda like the idea of a small touchscreen display, but $200 is just to much for me to consider it. I think the same thing every time I see one of these little displays.

What ever happened to this?
