    This two-point touch display from ViewSonic
    will arrive just in time for Microsoft's launch of Windows 8.

    On Wednesday ViewSonic introduced its latest touch-enabled
    LED-lit display, the 22-inch TD2220.

    Shipping later this month, it will be equipped with advanced
    dual-point optical touch technology allowing for precise 2-point
    touch navigation whether it's a finger, stylus or gloved hand.

    It will also have a hardened 8H level scratch resistant, dust-proof
    surface, perfect for commercial high traffic and consumer environments.


    According to the specs, the TD2220 will feature a 1920 x 1080
    (Full HD) resolution,
    a typical contrast ratio of 1000:1, a dynamic
    contrast ratio of 20,000,000:1, a typical brightness of 200 cd/m2
    and viewing angles of 170º horizontal and 160º vertical.

    It will also have a response time of 5 ms, and will be illuminated
    by a white-light LED.

    Video connectors will include a 15-pin mini D-sub port (VGA) and
    a DVI-D port (with HDCP).

    ViewSonic's new LED panel will also consist of two premium 2-watt
    speakers with SRS Premium Sound mounted on the back.

    It's USB HID compliant design will consist of two Type-A USB
    ports and one Type-B USB port for connecting a mouse, keyboard
    and other peripherals.

    Ideal for commercial environments, this touch-activated display will
    even include a VESA mountable design and a Kensington lock slot
    for security deterrence


    "This Energy Star and EPEAT Silver certified display also supports
    different Eco modes for energy savings of up to 40-percent over
    same-sized monitors," the company said.

    " Ideal for commercial environments, this touch-activated display
    also features a VESA mountable design and comes standard with
    a Kensington lock slot for security deterrence."

    VierwSonic's new TD2220 should be ideal for desktop consumers
    looking for a touch-based display for Windows 8.

    It's already compatible with Windows 7's own touch-based
    features right out of the box thanks to built-in Touch drivers.

    ViewSonic said the TD2220 will be available in North and Latin
    America the third week of October for an ESP of $329
    just in time for Windows 8.

    While that of having a touchscreen desktop monitor not seem
    very useful to us in most cases we must recognize that it can
    give you a few uses, from playful to production.

    Moreover, the price of the TD2220 is not bad considering
    its characteristics only wish that comes with the obligatory
    microfiber washcloth to clean our thick fingers greasy.​

    That's not a bad price. Most LCD touch-screens are well over double that.

    Limited usefulness, however. You won't get anywhere near the precision of using a mouse. Stubby fingers just don't have the fine resolution required.

    You think you have a problem with dirty, mucky screens now - what 'till you start using one of these.

    And leaning forward to poke your screen - it won't be long until the ol' neck and back start aching.
