Default Avalability of Lilliput or Xenarc screens?

Can anybody confirm, if I can source Lilliput or Xenarc VGA touch screens (7 in) in Bangalore or India? If its not available, let me know the experiences in importing these from US or even China. Whether its cost effective and if I will have to bear customs and how much?

Thanks in advance.

Visit Car PC Systems | Vehicle Infotainment Solutions | iRide Technologies, Mumbai, India for lilliput. I do not think Xenarc is available here.

There's one for sale too in the classifieds.
Do search there as well.
You can get it cheaper.

Thanks a lot. The screens sold by iRIDE are IRV not Lilliput. Or is it the Lilliput but branded as IRV.

IRV is just rebranded Lilliput. Price at iRide is much Higher side.
checkout Touch Screen India | Touch Monitors Mumbai | Kiosk & POS Components & Peripherals India. - AMS Impex, Mumbai, India. Once I requested quotation from AMS. They quoted Rs.11K for Toshiba 7" LCD with custom TouchScreen 4 Wire attachment.

@sushantr5 : True, the price quoted is almost equal to import from US including shipment and customs. Thats the reason I started to search for a cheaper alternative for Lilliput or Xenarc screens. How does Tochiba 7" screen fare with Lilliput and whats 4 wire attachemnt about.

4 wire resistive is a touchscreen attachment with which you can turn any monitor (LCD or CRT) into touchscreen. You can import this attachment for around rs. 2k and turn any monitor into touchscreen. Lilliput also does the same thing but sell whole thing under their brand name. They get LCD panels and 4 wire attachments and assemble all things and sell as Lilliput.

AMS does the same thing, they purchase Toshiba( or of any other brand mainly Toshiba) 7" LCD monitor and add an attachment to this screen.

Even if you are able to get normal 7" monitor then you can also turn that monitor into touch screen one.

Thats nice info. I think the toshiba one is bit economical and does the job. Also if u are aware of alibaba.com a wholesale online site. There we can get this Lilliput shipped. I got a quote of $190 + $54 shipping via DHL/Fedex. They accept Paypal or bank transfer. Just curious on if anyone has dealt with chinese companies and what would be the customs duty, becasue any package which is shipped via DHL or Fedex is scanned throughly by customs.

better u get from iRide. Because 190+54 + customs will go around price that iRide has...

If your any friend is coming from US then u can get it around $175
