We definitely dig Mimo's little auxiliary displays, but they suffer from two main problems: very limited availability in the States and a rather high price, conspiring to make them something less than an impulse buy. Sadly that latter constraint is still in place, but we're happy to say you're now just a few clicks away from buying your own if you're so inclined. Mimo has launched a US portal selling two seven-inch models, starting with the vanilla 710 at $130, offering a 800 x 480 screen with a 400:1 contrast ratio and brightness rated at 350 nits. On the higher end is the $200 740, adding touch capability and a webcam. In other words: same prices, easier to find. You decide if they're worth it for you.
