I'm really surprised nobody picked up on this yet.
I went to Xenarc's website, and lo and behold:
You can see this bad boy here: http://www.xenarc.com/product/700IDT.htmlLong awaited and much anticipated, the 700IDT made its finished debut and will begin shipping in early February 2005. The monitor is non-motorized and will fit into any single din space. Its spring-loading mechanism allows the screen to pop out automatically and is proven to be more durable than traditional motorized gearing. The monitor is equipped with resistive technology as well, and a VGA input and 2 composite video inputs and an audio input. Due to high demand, Xenarc Technologies is taking pre-orders on this unit, as the initial stock shipment of this item is nearly sold out already.
I did not see any pricing information, and it's not on their Xenarc Direct site yet.
Also noted in the above press release are their new 10.2 and FIFTEEN-DOT-THREE roof-mounted behemoth.
I'm definitely hoping they'll pick up the pace on manufacturing those IDT's, that's the final piece of my Car PC.
I saw that yesterday and just figured it was old news. I'm curious to see how much it costs though.
Mac: - Researching and Awaiting Funds
Changed to planning for a Mac Mini Trukputer...w3rd.
Sorry - I glanced through the forum messages, and didn't see one that jumped out "HEY 700IDT!" -- So I apologize.
The last 2 were not in this forum, that's why I didn't see them
If the 700TSV is $399 - I'd be willing to bet this thing will debut at $499 or so.
The Xenarc is *not* motorised.
