“The 21.5-inch, 250-nit, 1080p panel makes use of VA technology (like some other Acer monitors, actually), which provides viewing angles on par with IPS. Which is to say, they’re wide, and colors stay vibrant regardless of whether you’re standing off to the side or you’ve got the screen pushed down at a near-flat angle. As far as connectivity goes, you’ve got three USB ports, as well as micro-HDMI for hooking this up to your PC.”
It will start shipping in Europe next month, with pricing expected to be around €399 or $527, writes geeky-gadgets.
This is what Acer has to say onthe YouTube video below:
The Acer DA220HQL Smart Display can connect to a PC to act as a standard touchscreen, or it can operate independently as a large Android™ tablet. You can use this device to navigate the web with touch and in Full HD brilliance. Used as a tablet, you can also explore and download thousands of Android apps, many for free. This 21.5″ display sports stylish design features and tilts back from vertical to almost horizontal, so it’s easy to hang on a wall or place flat on a table or counter.
