Monitor specialist ViewSonic has added two low-end monitors to its Nokia display line. The devices are the first to be launched since ViewSonic purchased the Nokia branded business in Europe and the US in March.
The flat-panel Nokia 510L features a 15in viewable screen and a maximum resolution of 1204 x 768 in 32bit colour. The display measures 2.6in in depth without a stand.
ViewSonic has also added the Nokia 710C to its CRT range. The 17in monitor features a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024 with a recommended resolution of 1024 x 768 at 85Hz. The 710C has a dot pitch of 0.25mm.
The display has two integrated 5W speakers and a built-in microphone. However, an external microphone is required for use with voice-recognition software.
Bharat Kumar, marketing manager at ViewSonic Europe, said: "The Nokia 510L and 710C will prove popular with small office/home office and corporate users who wish to upgrade their display without having to break their budgets."
Both the Nokia 510L and 710C feature on-screen set-up controls and are plug-and-play compatible in Mac and PC environments, he said.
The estimated retail prices are £599 for the Nokia 510L and £199 for the 710C, including VAT. Both include a three-year warranty. ViewSonic also said that its best-selling monitor, the 17in E771, will be renamed the E70.
