Last year at CES in Las Vegas, Dell previewed a "concept" monitor that definitely pegged our collective geek-o-meters with its ultra-sleek, clear, tempered glass design and super-thin, clean profile. Back then not much was known about this 22" panel that popped out of nowhere, nor did we get a sense for when or even if the product would actually see the light of day on the open market. Now, just a few days before CES '08, this comes in from the smooth operators over at Dell...
This display has a glass enclosure and is only 4mm thick. The display measures 22" and has a 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution, 98% color gamut, 2ms response time (grey-to-grey), 2000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, HD connectivity with DVI/HDMI with HDCP, sub-woofer out and USB. The Crystal also has an integrated 2 megapixel webcam, speakers and a microphone.
More info at Hot Hardware. The Dell Crystal will be available for $1,199.
