LG introduces 23-inch touch monitor for Windows 8

The Touch 10 monitor will start shipping in November

For users who want a regular monitor, but still want to control Windows 8 using touch gestures, LG Electronics has introduced the Touch 10 monitor.

The last few months have seen the introduction of many all-in-ones, tablets and laptops that take advantage of Windows 8's more touch-friendly user interface, but LG thinks there is also room for regular monitors that can do the same.

The Touch 10 monitor allows users to take advantage of the touch-based user interface without having to upgrade their entire PC, according to LG. Just like on other Windows 8-compatible products all 10 fingers can be used simultaneously, allowing users to drag and rotate multiple items, it said.

The monitor also works with a capacitive stylus, which can be purchased separately. It has an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, and 1920-by-1080 pixel resolution.

The Touch 10 monitor will be available in Korea next month followed by markets in Europe and elsewhere. Pricing has yet to be announced.

Windows 8 was launched on October 26. On October 30, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said it had sold 4 million upgrades in three days. While U.K. retailer Dixons has reported that laptop sales were 20 per cent ahead of the forecasted sales for the weekend, according to Ballmer.
