Mobile Monitor Technologies (MMT) has announced the availability of its next generation products. Building upon its success with Field Monitor Pro, a full-size laptop companion, MMT has created entirely new portable display for iPads, iPhones, iPods, MacBooks and iMacs as well as other portable devices and computers.
With a 15.6-inch HD+ screen, Monitor2Go boasts a resolution of 1600x1900. With its ultra-portable, super-slim design, it extends and adds a second screen to the above-mentioned Macs via USB, and also functions as a second display for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch devices through HDMI.
"Using iPhones and iPads in the workplace has become a global phenomenon, but viewing, interacting with, and sharing content on these devices can be extremely problematic due to their small screens," says MMT President Larry Pensack. "Now with the ability to add dual display capabilities to mobile devices, Monitor2Go is an ideal solution whether you’re working or enjoying personal media content."
It has the added benefit of its patent-pending iPad slot that houses both the iPad 2 and the new iPad. This integrated, brushed aluminum design not only folds to protect and lock the tablet during transport, but also allows the user to share the iPad’s content on Monitor2Go’s larger display at the turn of the wrist. The display is more than 2X larger than the iPad screen itself and features 360 degrees of accessible, viewable screen area.
While the Monitor2Go was designed with Apple products in mind, it also works with all PCs and HDMI compatible devices. It's available in two models: HD+ with 1600x900 resolution for US$329, and HD with 1366x768 resolution for $299. To order, visit www.mmt2.com .
