Albatron multi-touch LCD

Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer Albatron on Tuesday announced the prototype multi-touch display it showed off some seven months ago is now nearly ready for shipment, and will be made available for sale in a couple of months. The unnamed 21.5-inch LCD places the touch sensors in the monitor's bezel rather than the screen itself, allowing for a brighter and stronger displays. It is one of the first monitors that will allow at least Windows 7 users to enjoy the operating system's native support for multi-touch applications.

Little else is known about the screen, apart from that the LCD will have a 120Hz refresh rate and there will be both a DVI and VGA input. Touch information will be sent to the PC via a USB cable. No pricing information is known, but the display is due to come to market sometime in March. [via Engadget]
