Dell has already launched these two new models in Japan, although we're expecting them to arrive worldwide shortly. First up is the new 22-inch SP2208WFP which has a native resolution of 1,680x1,050, pretty much the norm in this segment, with a 2ms response time and a dynamic contrast ratio of 2,000:1. It also has the ability to reproduce 92 percent of the NTSC colour gamut.
But what makes it stand out from most other 22-inch LCD monitors is not only the built in 2 Megapixel webcam and the built in microphone, as it also sports a D-sub, DVI-D with HDCP and no less than three HDMI connectors. It also has a built in four port USB 2.0 hub with two side mounted ports.
Dell also announced an updated 24-inch model, the E248WFP, which features a native resolution of 1,920x1,200. It has a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, the same colour gamut and 400cd per square meter brightness. It has a D-sub input as well as a pair of HDCP compliant DVI connectors.
The SP2208WFP is expected to retail for about US$510 and the E248WFP for $587. You can find a translated version of the SP2208WFP press release here.
