AOC has begun shipping its new Aire iPlay monitor, which it first announced back at CES 2012. The 23-inch display features a built-in iPhone or iPod speaker dock so that you can charge your device right in front of you while you work and listen to music from the device at the same time.
The 23-inch Aire iPlay monitor is super slim at 12.9mm thin. It offers a 16:9 aspect ratio and Full HD 1080p resolution display with a 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio and 2ms response time. Its base features not only the 30-pin iPhone dock but also an HDMI input and 10-watt built-in speakers that promise to deliver high quality SRS Premium sound.
The Aire iPlay monitor also features a Screen+ user interface that divides the screen into four sections to help with your work flow. It offers a graphical OSD menu that can be accessed directly through the mouse using an integrated iMenu software. The display went on sale today for $279, but is available through Amazon for $229.
