Dell's much-anticipated 4K monitor arrives with a very keen price

Dell plans to sell its long-awaited 4K monitor for only $699, the company has revealed at CES 2014.

Last year the company announced it would be offering the 28in "Ultra HD" P2815Q screen for less than $1,000. Now it's come in some way below that mark, with a final US price of $699, according to a report by Forbes. UK pricing wasn't available at the time of publication.

The screen has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 and will launch globally on 23 January.

Other specifications are currently thin on the ground, with Dell merely confirming that the screen will tilt, pivot and swivel, and that it will have multiple connections for "smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs," without confirming exactly what they are.

Our team on the ground at CES in Las Vegas should be able to bring you more details later this week.

4K has become a theme at this year's CES: Sony yesterday unveiled an Ultra-Short-Throw Projector that can effectively turn walls into 147in 4K displays.

Netflix has also this week announced plans to stream the forthcoming series of its drama House of Cards at 4K resolution, while YouTube announced a less bandwidth-intensive technology for 4K streams.
