This week's final installment of Gadgets Available Today features a display and a smartphone. AAOC has a new 24" monitor out that's both eco and wallet-friendly, and Alltel customers can now pick up the Blackberry Tour.
• AOC's 2436Vw is a monitor built for the budget and eco-conscious consumer. The 24" 1080p display draws only 49W of power and conforms to EPAT Gold standards, but still manages to pump out a brightness rating of 300cd/m2 and a 60,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. We all know that those numbers sometimes don't accurately indicate how well the display performs, but if you're curious enough to go check the 2436Vw out for yourself, you should be able to find it at Fry's this weekend. Ships today for $220. [Electronista]
• The Blackberry Tour is finally available to Alltel customers. It's the same Tour Verizon and Sprint customers have had access to for over a month. As far as I know, Verizon owns Alltel, which leaves me confused as to why Alltel subscribers have had to wait so long for to get their hands on this phone. Regardless, anyone on America's other-other CDMA carrier can pick up the Tour now for $199 after $100 rebate. [Press Release via Ubergizmo]
