AOC touts Aire monitor for iPhones and iPods


Posted by Shane McGlaun

AOC has debuted a new and very cool monitor that will work with your PC or Mac - and also includes a  docking station for an iPhone or iPod.

The 23-inch screen features integrated speakers at its base, making the display perfect for playing video content from your iPhone on a larger screen.

AOC touts Aire monitor for iPhones and iPods"The Aire Monitor with Docking Station is ideal for iPhone and iPod users who want to watch movies or browse photos on a 23-inch high definition flat screen directly from their mobile device," said AOC exec Robert Velez. 



"The monitor displays photos and video content on a screen that is 37 times larger than the iPhone that it comes from."
 
The display boasts some pretty sweet specs: a 50M:1 dynamic contrast ratio, support for full 1080p resolution and a panel response time of 5ms - facilitating the rendering of clean and crisp images. 


The display also features 16.7 million color reproduction, 16:9 aspect ratio, 250CD/m2 brightness rating, EPEAT Silver certification and LED backlighting. Connectivity includes an HDMI port in addition to the dock.

Personally, I can certainly see the use for a monitor like the Aire. I like to watch Netflix on my iPhone when my wife is watching a chick flick, and my son is playing games on the other TV. So yes, I could definitely dock the handset and watch films or recorded videos on a bigger screen.

The display is relatively cheap with a price of $279.99, and will hit stores this March.
