    No price info? Definitely not a gaming monitor. Also, it looks like it purely draws power from the device it's plugged into via USBC... so no battery? That kills it for even use with a phone. Pretty lame.

    I imagine that if portable gaming was that important to you, you'd have a gaming laptop, no?

    Not sure why that wasn't in the original article.

    But $250? ooof... No battery; no CPU; no touch screen; no accessories; a dim, low rez panel 60Hz... Not sure what you're paying for. Too much competition to excuse this.
