Acer has introduced a new multitouch monitor, the perfect complement to a fresh copy of Windows 7. At 23", the T230H is a bit larger than competing units from HP and Dell, and it has some respectable specifications. With multitouch support, the monitor will recognize both one and two-finger gestures, like pinch-zoom.

It features a native 1080p resolution, a 2ms response time, an 80,000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, .265mm pixel pitch, 16.7 million colors, connectors for VGA, DVI, HDMI, and USB (for touch functionality), and built-in 1.5W stereo speakers. The T230H has an adjustable height of 110mm along with -5/15 degree tilt and swivel capabilities. It also has VESA wall mount and Kensington Lock support.

Acer backs the T230H with a 3-year "bring-in service" and will launch the display soon in Europe at a cost of 349 euros (about $514). While there is no information on US availability or pricing, the T230H is listed on Acer's US site, so a stateside debut seems imminent.
