Touchscreen added to Mimo's USB-powered portable monitor

Mimo launches 7in monitor with touch capabilities

Monitor manufacturer Mimo has announced a new addition to their recently revealed dual hinge monitor range.

Earlier this month the company shared details on the 710-S, a portable 7" 800x480 display, which has a unique dual hinge allowing for the monitor to be used in a variety of positions, including a handy folding position for when you're on the move or for when the device is not being used. The device could also double up as an attractive cheap second display option for laptops and netbooks.

Yet despite the recent announcement of the 710-S, Mimo today added a touch screen option to the range in the form of the 720-S. The 720-S packs all the same features that the 710 boasts, including being powered by a single USB cable, but also gives users the chance to touch their way around.

A September launch is expected for the 720, but the 710 is available now for just under $US150.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
