Give Your Phone a 23-inch Touchscreen With ViewSonic's New Monitor

Ever wished your phone's screen was, ooh, seven times larger? Well ViewSonic can help: its new smart touchscreen display wirelessly connects to your phone, extending your handset's display.

ViewSonic has announced a 23-inch monitor that comes with 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen. But the best bit is that tucked away behind the display is an ARM11 processor and built-in wireless 802.11b/g/n connectivity.

According to ViewSonic, the wireless connection lets you extend your phone's screen on to the monitor — though it doesn't explain exactly how. What that does means, though, is that you could casually stream Netflix from your phone while it was on the other side of the room, or play Angry Birds on larger screen than you're used to. Which has to count for something, right?

It also supports VGA and DVI, and has 2 port USB ports. No word on ship date or pricing at the moment. [View Sonic via The Verge]
