NEC's 26-inch MultiSync 2690WXi widescreen monitor gets facetime

Although NEC already went blue earlier today on its new LaVie L laptop, the firm's 26-inch MultiSync 2690WXi widescreen monitor is holding down the ever-trendy white / silver motif. Getting a bit of facetime at Focus on Imaging 2007, the expansive display looks to be a match made in heaven for Mac users who don't feel like springing for any of Apple's own offerings, and is aiming at the eagle-eyed photographer who appreciates color accuracy as much as any specification on a display. The unit purportedly offers up 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178-degree viewing angles, 800:1 contrast ratio, seven-millisecond response time, VGA / DVI inputs, and support for wall mounting as well. It was noted that an elusive "professional" rendition was also on display, alongside quite a few competing EIZO monitors targeting the shooting set, but even the "lower-end" 2690WXi will reportedly demand a stiff £868 ($1,700) for all its color-perfecting ways.
