NexPad: Nex Computer begins shipping US$249 secondary display with USB connectivity
Nex Computer is now shipping the NexPad, a device that the company introduced at the start of the year. Equipped with a 12-inch IPS display, the NexPad has multiple ports and can be used as a secondary display with a laptop or even a smartphone.
Nex Computer has finally started shipping the NexPad, nearly 10 months after revealing the device alongside the NexMonitor. As we discussed at the time, Nex Computer hoped to release both devices in July 2022. Seemingly, this summer was overly ambitious for the NexMonitor too. Currently, Nex Computer has pushed NexMonitor shipments until Q1 2023 at the earliest, although the price of both variants has now dropped by US$100.
In comparison, the NexPad remains a US$249 investment, for which Nex Computer charges US$19 shipping. Seemingly, specifications remain unchanged, with the NexPad featuring a 12-inch laminated display within a 277 x 250 x 63 mm chassis. According to Nex Computer, the NexPad utilises an IPS panel that operates at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Unfortunately, the company has not outlined the panel’s peak brightness, or its aspect ratio.
Additionally, the NexPad has a mini HDMI 2.0 port, a USB 2.0 Type-C port and twin USB 3.1 Type-C ports that support pass-through charging. Moreover, the NexPad can be used as a secondary display for either a laptop or a smartphone. It is worth keeping in mind that the NexPad weighs 736 g without its kickstand, meaning that its combined weight with a smartphone attached could near 1 kg. You can find more details about the NexPad on Nex Computer’s website, from where you can also order the accessory.
