What do you get when you mix buzzwords like “cloud” and “tablet” with an enourmous multi-touch monitor? The InFocus Mondopad, that’s what. The company anticipates that this 55-inch 1080p high-definition pane “wall tablet”, equipped with WiFi and a 720p webam / soundbar, will bring pad-like functionality to your next presentation in a big way. The proprietary software mimics the feel of a mobile OS — only bigger and blander looking — with basic apps like a whiteboard and web browser, as well as support for Office, JPG, and PDF files. Also inside is Intel’s vPro tech, enabling remote access and file sharing with mobile devices — or having dual-screen sessions with a 58-inch iPhone table, for instance. Pre-ordering one will run you $5,949 for delivery in July and VoIP service through Vidtel will cost $49 a month per connection. No word yet on whether a more portable version is the works, but you’ll find some PR and a video walkthrough after the break.
