D-Link unveils a USB-powered monitor for multi-taskers

If you find yourself constantly wishing you had more screen real estate to work with, D-Link has a new product that might interest you.  The D-Link SideStage hopes to provide a bit more space without the need for an entire second monitor.

The SideStage was created with multi-taskers in mind as well as those who need more screen space for program tools.  D-Link suggests using the SideStage to “display instant messaging, watch videos, conduct video conferencing via webcams, display Yahoo® Widgets™ and Microsoft® Gadgets™, or house common tools from programs such as Adobe® PhotoShop®”.  The device itself has a 7-inch LCD screen with 800×480 resolution, which might make it the ideal tool for those spoiled by a second monitor at home or in the office but not on the road.

No news yet on pricing, though we do know that the SideStage will be released sometime later this year. D-Link plans to have the device on display at CES later this week, so we’ll try to snap some pictures of it and press D-Link for more concrete details.
