Century Japan USB LCD
Century Japan has recently introduced a secondary LCD screen, the LCD-4300U, that is just 4.3 inches in size and connects entirely to users' desktop or notebook PCs via a USB 2.0 port. Meant as an add-on display for secondary programs such as an IM program, media player or toolbox, the 800x480 resolution display has a built-in and adjustable stand. Provided users have enough desk space and USB ports, Century Japan claims up to seven LCD-4300Us can be connected to a single PC or Intel-based Mac.
The LCD-4300U uses an LED backlight to achieve a brightness rating of 200cd/m2. The LCD will be available in Japan in mid-November, priced at the equivalent of nearly $200. No word has been given on whether the LCD is meant for North American consumption. [via Slashgear]
