Mimo’s 7″ monitors have a 800×480 display resolution; novel stands that let them sit just about anywhere; and they can rotate to portrait orientation. Lurking in the blogs for months, they’re finally shipping, beating competition from D-Link to the shelves. All the new breed of mini-monitors are USB, too, meaning that they don’t waste a DVI port.
I’ve often wanted a small auxiliary monitor on which to slap IM windows, twitter deck apps, scratch pads and the like, but finding a reasonable balance between size, price and quality was always a pain. So it’s natural that as soon as I thought “Bah, I’ll just get a second display,” last year, than the exact thing I wanted originally should appear, grinning.
