MimoMonitors.com To Launch "Magic Touch" – World's First-Ever USB-Driven Capacitive Touchscreen Monitor
Be the First to Own the Most Responsive & Versatile Touchscreen Monitor for Home or Work Computing; Now Taking Orders For Pre-Christmas Delivery on Standard and Deluxe Models
November 22, 2011 – Princeton, NJ – As the company known for ushering USB touchscreen monitors into the US market only a few years ago, MimoMonitors.com will once again deliver an industry-first with the mid-December launch of the Mimo Magic Touch 10" mini-monitor with the amazing responsiveness of capacitive touch. Capacitive sensing technology has revolutionized the wireless smart phone market; now, the Mimo Magic Touch makes it available as an interface for your computer – far surpassing the responsiveness and overall user experience of traditional "point-and-poke" resistive touchscreen monitors. The monitor will be available in two models, the standard Mimo Magic Touch which offers a single USB 2.0 connection for both connectivity and power; and the Mimo Magic Touch Deluxe, which adds two convenient USB ports to act as a mini-hub to connect other peripherals, along with a separate AC adapter to re-charge or drive high-power devices plugged into the USB hub, when needed.
The Mimo Magic Touch is a perfect solution for touchscreen control panels in such applications as point-of-sale (POS) input and entry, corporate videoconferencing, smart home entertainment systems, and industrial/manufacturing controls. It is also ideal for a range of other touchscreen applications in healthcare, hospitality, retail, education, sound/video editing, and many other industries. Furthermore, its versatile design allows for screen removal and independent use from its docking station, as either a tethered USB-powered tablet or mounted display (via the VESA 75 mounting system).
Like other products in the MimoMonitors.com line of USB mini-monitors, the Mimo Magic Touch also allows users to de-clutter their crowded, primary desktop monitor and offload popular business applications such as web browsers, Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Word, Skype, and instant messaging. For personal use, the Mimo Magic Touch can act as a great peripheral monitor for social networking, iTunes and media players, chat windows, online auctions, stock tracking tools, fantasy sports dashboards, and more.
Compact and versatile, the Mimo Magic Touch screen is less than 1-inch thick and weighs under 1lb, while featuring a best-in-class 1024 x 600 resolution – offering sharp graphics and clear images for video, multi-media design, and a full range of business needs. It is fully compatible with Windows 7, and can act as a display-only monitor with Windows Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS.
Pre-orders for the first shipment of Mimo Magic Touch 10" mini-monitors are now being accepted at www.mimomonitors.com for delivery before Christmas to US-based customers. The standard Mimo Magic Touch is priced at $299.99, and the Mimo Magic Touch Deluxe is priced at $329.99.
