Pertelian X2040

An all too familiar experience for computer users is trying to keep track of e-mail or instant message conversations while the main focus onscreen is a work program or a game. The expense and size of a full second display is not always an option. ForeSight Systems is counting on this latter fact with the release of its updated Pertelian X2040 PC Assistant. Using a simple 20x4 monochrome display, the X2040 is capable of not only displaying important information from its host PC but of responding to some of that information as well. A user can see instant messages from common IM clients such as AIM or MSN and also respond to them without having to leave an existing program. The device can also keep track of eBay auctions, IRC channels, TeamSpeak communications, RSS feeds, and media jukeboxes including iTunes. ForeSight says its new Pertelian display should become available in October for $49.
