You asked, questioned and implored -- why, with all these underpowered touchscreen all-in-ones
prowling our lands, can we not get a decent standalone touchscreen monitor? Well, somebody somewhere listened, and somebody else, presumably elsewhere, leaked. Presenting the entirely unofficial, but all the same real, Dell SX2210T: a 1920 x 1080 21.5-inch panel that has HDMI and DVI inputs alongside an integrated 2 megapixel webcam and microphone for your Skyping convenience. If its 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 2ms grey-to-grey response time sound familiar, it's because the non-touch sensitive SX2210
has been available for a while already. From the support documentation we're looking at, you'll need to hook up an extra USB connection for the touch interface, which doesnt appear to be multitouch
, but we can always hope for a miraculous firmware update down the line, right? Update:
More info has surfaced on this monitor, which can now be purchased for $469 from Dell's online store
, and will come with multtitouch panning and zooming
when attached to a Windows 7 machine.
