Microsoft is launching a computer monitor that it claims will best show the new functions and features in its Vista operating system.
The software giant is working with Samsung to build a high-resolution, 22in widescreen Vista Monitor, which is due for release around the same time as the operating system.
Vista has been designed to look best when using a widescreen display, and Microsoft wants to ensure that as far as possible users take advantage of this. By producing a Microsoft-badged monitor, it can promote widescreen Vista use to those who upgrade from Windows XP or buy a new PC running the operating system.
Samsung confirmed it is working with Microsoft to build the monitors. Ami Randhawa, monitor product manager at Samsung, said: 'The demand is being driven by Vista. It will be branded Microsoft, but built by Samsung.'
Microsoft was contacted, but said: 'Microsoft does not comment on rumour and speculation.'
