MEDL Tech unveils portable 13-inch LCD

One of the big issues for people used to working on a desktop when they travel with a notebook is that they typically lose screen space on the notebook. The more screen space you have, the more productive you can be.

A company called MEDL Technology has unveiled a new portable LCD for notebook users on the go that uses LED backlighting. The screen is 13-inches wide and has a WXGA resolution. The device weighs 2.2 pounds and has internal rechargeable batteries for powering the device away from an outlet.

The screen needs a single USB cable to connect and power the device and it works with Mac or Windows computers. The panel can also be connected to cameras, DVD players, iPhones, and other devices like the PS3 and Xbox. Pricing and availability are unknown.
