Nanovision have updated their range of MIMO USB LCD sub-displays with a new travel-friendly model. The Nanovision MIMO 710-S “Mobile Slider” keeps the same 800 x 480 resolution 7-inch LCD display from the existing range, but pairs it with a new folding, twisting clamshell stand that can be used to protect the display during transit.
That’s handy, because these mini-displays perhaps make most sense when used to add a little more screen real-estate to a laptop. Connecting via USB and using the DisplayLink virtual monitor system rather than a computer’s own video card, the 710-S boasts 350 cd/m2 brightness and a 500:1 contrast ratio.
Power and data is courtesy of a double-headed USB cable (though we found in our review of the previous models that the two plugs were not always necessary, depending on power output from the USB port), though there’s no sign of a webcam or touchscreen version. The Nanovision MIMO 710-S “Mobile Slider” USB display will be priced at $149.
