Monitor offers same tech as many all-in-ones
Dell has introduced its first touchscreen monitor, the SX2210T. The device offers the same basic specs as the company's SX2210 product, with a 21.5-inch panel and 1920x1080 resolution, but adds support for touch control. The optical touch technology can be used with a finger or stylus, with +/- 2.5mm accuracy across most of the screen area.
The monitor offers a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 2ms response time, while integrating a 2 megapixel webcam and microphone for video conferencing. Users can choose from HDMI, DVI, or VGA video inputs, while the touch signal is communicated via USB.
Dell currently lists the SX2210T for $469. The Multi-Touch functionality is supported only with Windows 7 Home Premium or higher. [via Engadget]
