Mobile-Friendly Secondary USB Monitor (Mimo 710-S)

 Mobile-Friendly Secondary USB Monitor from Mimo (710-S)For people who are accustomed to a dual monitor configuration, going on the road with a regular laptop can be an exercise in frustration. The Nanovision Mimo line aims to address this concern by providing a secondary monitor that can run completely from a single USB connection, power and all. The trouble, up until now, is that they haven’t exactly been portable.

With the Nanovision Mimo 710, you were left with a small monitor that would be difficult to pack into your bag. However, the new Nanovision Mimo 710-S is much more pocket-friendly, thanks to its folding and rotating form factor. When not in use, the screen can rotate to landscape and then fold down like it was a tiny netbook.

By folding flat, the Mimo 710-S can easily slot into your briefcase, backpack, or even your extra large cargo pants pocket. Maybe. Either way, you’ll have a quick and convenient second screen for your notebook, providing a perfect space for Twitter clients, instant messengers, and other secondary applications.

Aside from the clamshell form factor, the Mimo 710-S is pretty much the same as its original 710 cousin. You get a seven-inch screen with a 800×480 pixel resolution, 350 cd/m2 brightness, and 500:1 contrast ratio. The travel-friendly Mimo sells for $179, representing a $30 premium over the original.
