Along with outing its new IPS displays, HP is announcing an 18.5-inch internet monitor today. The Passport 1912nm is targeted at businesses such as hotels and cyber cafes, allowing users to browse the web via Firefox and access photos, video and music via a simple five-icon home screen. There’s an ARM CPU, 2GB of Flash RAM and 1GB of DDR2 memory under the hood, and the 1366 x 768 is bundled with a USB keyboard and mouse. Connections include five USB ports, Ethernet and a 4-in-1 media card reader. The Passport 1912nm goes on sale today for $259, though you’re probably more likely to encounter the internet monitor in an airport or store than to shell out for a web kiosk of your own.
