Nanovision MIMO 720-S touchscreen display review

Nanovision MIMO 720-S touchscreen display review

Back when we reviewed the first Nanovision MIMO USB monitors, the UM-710 and UM-730, we wondered whether price and niche appeal would see them a passing fad. The proliferation of roughly 7-inch USB display rivals in the intervening months would seem to suggest that fear was unfounded, and indeed Nanovision are back with their second generation of companion monitors. Now narrowed down to two units - the basic MIMO 710-S and the touchscreen MIMO 720-S - we've had the finger-friendly model on our desk for the past week. Check out the full review after the cut.

Nanovision MIMO 710-S USB LCD display gets folding travel case/stand

Nanovision MIMO 710-S USB LCD display gets folding travel case/stand

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.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 47 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 47 2008

Most anticipated news this week was the launch of the BlackBerry Storm on Verizon Wireless, RIM's first touchscreen handset.  If you're at all considering the Storm then make sure to check out our two part super-review: part one is here, part two is here.

Meanwhile, Apple released firmware 2.2 for the iPhone, bringing with it Street View and over-the-air podcast downloads among other things.  Check out the full details of the upgrade here.  That release was followed in short order by QuickPwn for v2.2.  What the new firmware didn't include was MMS messaging, but that might be arriving sooner rather than later if Mobispine have their way.

Nanovision MIMO UM-710 & UM-730 USB displays Review

It's a rare occasion when one of the gadgets Korean customers are blessed with deigns to cross over to shores further afield; so rare, in fact, that you can help but have high-hopes for them.  Nanovision's MIMO 7-inch USB displays endeared themselves when first announced, and became only more attractive when the company confirmed US and European availability.  We've had the UM-710 and UM-730 on our desk for the past week; are they legitimate productivity enhancers, or just another USB ornament?

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 46 2008

It's been a mobile device bonanza this week, with the AT&T Fuze landing at SlashGear and promptly getting hauled over to the Sprint HTC Touch Pro for a damned good comparing.  Meanwhile HTC have set tongues wagging by fettling a version of the Touch HD for a Russian WiMAX carrier: they assure us that the HTC MAX 4G won't be showing up anywhere else, but forgive us if we're natural sceptics.  Meanwhile Verizon finally confirmed that the BlackBerry Storm 9530 would hit stores on November 24th, priced from $199.99, AT&T released the QuickFire, and Nokia confirmed the open-secret that is the E63 smartphone.
