MIMO iMo 7-inch secondary touchscreen dips under $200

We've reviewed a fair few MIMO secondary displays – the original 7-inch USB panels back in November 2008, and then more recently the touchscreen 720-S – and now the company has another on offer.  The MIMO iMo Pivot is being billed as the cheapest (sorry, "most inexpensive") touchscreen mini-monitor so far, coming in at $199.99.

As with its siblings, the iMo Pivot has a 7-inch 800 x 480 LCD panel and gets both power and signal via a USB connection and the DisplayLink software.  Rather than a fixed stand there's a ball-and-joint system, but the iMo can also be detached and used with its simple flip-out kickstand too.

Screen specs are 350cd/m2 brightness and 400:1 contrast, but at the end of the day this is a convenience monitor rather than something you'd want to do your primary computing or media consumption on.  Think separate IM, Twitter and email window rather than anything else.
