MIMO 710-Slider USB LCD
MIMO rendered its mini monitors more portable on Monday by launching the 710-Slider. While it has the same 7-inch, 800x480 display as some earlier displays, its stand design lets the display fold completely flat with the base and lets users tote the display safely as a companion display for a notebook. Like before, the new version is completely driven by USB and receives both the visual signal and power over the single cable.
USB also helps with platform independence and lets the display work with both Mac OS X Tiger or later (through a driver download) as well as Windows XP and Vista. The 710-Slider is already available and sells for $150.
