    Albatron Technology OTM215L1, the optical multi-touch monitor designed for home users, has passed WHQL test for Windows 7 in March 2010. To provide the best “touch” experience and ensure the best compatibility with “Windows Touch” structure, Albatron Technology spent lots of time in tuning the accuracy of multi-touch function in developing stage. With WHQL certification, user can enable multi-touch function under Windows 7 without install driver; furthermore, the “calibration-free” design brings plug-n-touch experience to all users, no need to calibrate by users.

    When users have OTM215L1, they are free from installing mouse & keyboard. By multi-touch function & Windows 7 embedded “Virtual keyboard”, users can do click or drag object on screen, and can even input text on screen via virtual keyboard. It does save more space for you.

    oh great, WHQL monitors now - at least it gives the benefit of using generic MS drivers

    Multi touch is awesome for working with photos and renders and things like that. If my monitor would've had a multi-touch option, I would've grabbed it.

    I still don't get why they sell touch screen monitors with conventional stands. Wouldn't that thing be a huge pain to use in a conventional desktop setting? Even if you angled it significantly I would still doubt it's stability when doing things at the edge of the screen....
