Extends display capabilities of tablets & iPads

AOC has begun shipping a new portable monitor to extend the display capabilities of tablets and other smaller screened devices. The 15.6-inch AOC e1649fwu wields its USB 2.0 port to provide power and and a second display for a notebook that can be as large as the notebook itself. It offers a maximum resolution of 1366x768 at 60Hz.

Brightness on the panel is modest at 200 cd/m2, and the contrast ratio is a relatively low 500:1, possibly due to power. Embedded in the display is a DisplayLink DL-125 chip that incorporates DVI, VGA, TTL and LVDS (FPI) video output. It's supported on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Mac OS X from Tiger onwards. The screen is also Linux-friendly.

AOC is positioning the peripheral as a take-along monitor for business presentations, and for other multi-screen apps such as heavy-duty social networking, photo editing, and expanded spreadsheets. Priced at $139, the monitor is currently available through unspecified retailers and online stores.
