USB Powered Mini Monitor from D-Link
D-Link introduced a sweet little 7 inch LCD display powered by USB. The SideStage, which I think is a great name, is a 800×400 resolution monitor which extends your primary screen. It’s great to stream stock quotes, or run IM applications or other small utilities you don’t want to use on the main monitor. Yet not the first one we’ve seen.
The SideStage would also be ideal for Photoshop users and such who want to move the toolbar out of the main screen.
The SideStage from D-Link is expected to sell for about $100, although no price point has yet been announced. The other piece of info we didn’t get is launch date. Set to be summer time, which isn’t soon enough.
According to D-Link’s representative Les Goldberg, the SideStage is compatible with virtually all CRT and flat-panel monitors, has standard and wide-screen aspect ratios, 32-bit True Color depth for high-quality images, and ultra-low power consumption, which is consistent with the D-Link Green initiative.
