WSJ.com - Microsoft Targets Consumers With New Portable Display "The new smart displays, formerly code-named "Mira," are essentially thin, flat computer monitors that can be carried around the house. They draw their power from a regular PC via a wireless connection and can be used for tasks such as Web surfing, reading e-mail, sending instant messages or listening to digital music. Microsoft says they will appeal to people who want to read their e-mail while watching TV in the living room, or who want to access the Internet from the kitchen. ...
Microsoft and ViewSonic note that the ViewSonic machines will come with a PC wireless adapter and a free upgrade to Microsoft's Windows XP software, two extras that would together cost about $300 if bought separately. Prices are expected to come down eventually."
Interesting that they decided to bundle XP (Pro) -- that gets around the issue of Home not having support for Terminal Services...
