A Gizmodo reader saw the Mimo 7-inch USB rotatable, touchscreen display and he thought they were so cool that he is importing 500 units to sell them in the US. I'm not surprised, because they are extremely nice and useful indeed: You only have to connect it to a USB port and it will work as a satellite 800 x 480 screen for anything you want, from small apps-like instant messengers-to widgets-like Photoshop tools. The even better news: Mac OS X drivers are coming too. He says he's importing the UM-710 and the UM-730, which apart from being rotatable, has touchscreen capabilities, webcam, microphone, and a built-in speaker. Specifications Display Size: 7" Display Resolution: 800 x 480 Brightness: 350cd/m2 Contrast Ratio: 400:1 UM-710 Connections: USB 2.0 UM-730 Connections: USB 2.0, Audio In, Audio Out UM-710 Functions: Monitor, Pivots UM-730 Functions: Monitor, Pivots, Touchscreen, Webcam, Microphone, Speaker Dimensions: 195 x 97.5 (UM-730: 197 x 97.5) Apparently, the manufacturer told him that they are working on Mac OS X drivers now. The UM-710 is now available for pre-order for $130, while you can get the UM-730 for $170. [The Gadgeteers]

Seems Morse code is the new language of Gizmodo. I guess I'll have to go to Engadget, where the netizens only know English, Engrish, and Bad Engrish.
