Using twin monitors, or at least a secondary cheaper monitor is nothing new for many of us, and we all enjoy having them, for resting IM windows and Photoshop toolbars, so manufacturers had nothing to add here, but features and capabilities. The one on the left, coming from Hanwha, and named the HM-TL7T, is a 7-inch sub-display that sports an impressive connectivity
If many rushed pointing out the touchscreen capability of this (which many other monitors have nowadays, and even if they don't - they can be DIY-ed into), I would like to highlight the connecting possibilities of the display, which make it simply outstanding. Rather than sporting just your average USB connectivity, like most displays in its category, the HM-TL7T features both HDMI and VGA slots, just like one would find on a regular full-size monitor. Come to think about it, I have seen many displays that lack the HDMI port, so I might add this is even better.
Aside from that, the Hanwha HM-TL7T is quite ordinary, with a WVGA 800 x 480 pixel resolution and sporting a panning / swiveling mount for comfortable positioning and orientation of the screen. Given the HDMI connector and the touchscreen ability, I would rather see this as an off-the-desk display, for customers to place in their bedroom, kitchen or anything alike
, and have access to various applications.
Home automation was the first example that came to my mind, but music playback and social networking are no less available, for the likes of you that can't eat without keeping up to date with Tweeter. Just remember to dress it in a nylon bag, so you don't get peanut butter on it. Last but not least, I also see this perfectly suit low-power netbooks that can't quite drive a full monitor via DisplayLink. No pricing or availability yet.
