You could try using a Digital Photo Frame which you can just pop your cameras memory stick into -  you can get these quite cheap from somewhere like ebuyer.

thatelvis,

A common tool for this among traveling pros is a combination storage/viewer device. You insert the card and it instantly transfers the photos from the card into the device - and for the viewer-type devices, then allows you to view the photos, often with histograms, exposure data, etc.

The Epson devices (P6000, P7000) have the largest screens, at 4", but are some of the most expensive for the total storage space:

The MemoryKick 160GB has a 3.5" screen, but double the storage of the Epson device at almost half the price:

Also look at products from Digital Foci, like the Picture Porter Elite (http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Foci-Picture-Porter-Viewer/dp/B000I6RLVC/)

Once you get beyond this, you are really looking at mini-laptop prices and sizes, like the Sony P-series (http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&categoryId=8198552921644608896&XID=O:sony%20p%20series:dg_nb_gglsrch) - which you could use for both image storage and for tethered shooting (plugged into the camera).

I am not aware of any product which plugs directly into the camera to display photos, but of course the 40D has a video out port, so you can view the images on any LCD-type TV screen using that mode.

Cheers,
LHerrou
