Dell SX2210T brings multi-touch, webcam
After a leak and Japanese details earlier this week, Dell on Friday brought its SX2210T display to the US. It represents Dell's first dedicated multi-touch display and supports one- or two-finger input in operating systems that recognize them, particularly Windows 7. Regardless of platform, the 21.5-inch LCD is relatively high quality for a TN-based panel with an 83 percent color gamut and a 50,000:1 contrast ratio.
The 1080p-native screen carries its own two-megapixel webcam and takes either DVI or VGA for video input. Both touch and the webcam signal are pushed to the attached computer through a built-in four-port USB hub. American buyers can buy the SX2210T for $469.
