Wondering what's up for grabs today? We've got you covered. If you're on the hunt for a new monitor check out Dell's trio of affordable LCDs. Also, if you mean business, Nextel has just released a rugged handset for you.

• Dell didn't make much noise about the release of their three LCD monitors today, probably because there really isn't much to make noise about. All I can say is that the pricing isn't too bad. The 23-inch has native 1080p (1920X1080) resolution, 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a 5 millisecond response time, and retails for $229. The 22-inch and 20-inch monitors share a 1000:1 contrast ratio, but the 22-inch has 1920X1080 resolution, while the 20-inch falls short with 1600X900, and go for $199 and $139, respectively.

• The Motorola r7651S "is built for companies where communication is mission critical." Alright, you've got my attention. This rugged handset withstands humidity, extreme temperatures, dust shock, vibration, radiation, salt fog and blowing rain (you know, conditions the Gizmodo interns are put through on a daily basis). The r7651S features Bluetooth, MMS, GPS, and can communicate with up to 20 other Nextel Direct Connect subscribers at a time. I am constantly cleaning my iPhone's screen, making sure it doesn't get scratched or get dirty, so maybe it's time to upgrade to this military-grade handset, right? It's too bad these bad boys go for about $2000. [Sprint]
