Smart Display is a wireless touch screen display device in development at Microsoft. The Smart Display is basically a portable PC monitor that can be carried from room to room in your house, connecting wirelessly to your computer for web-surfing and other activities that require little or no keyboard activity. (However, for e-mail and note writing, a touch-sensitive keyboard can be made available on the screen.) A number of companies, including Fujitsu, NEC, Philips Electronics, TriGem Computer and ViewSonic, are manufacturing the devices.

Currently, Smart Display only works with the Windows XP Professional operating system, and only one Smart Display can access computer resources at any given time. If the product is to become as widely used as Microsoft hopes, the company will have to address these issues.

The Smart Display development project was codenamed "Mira."
