Portable monitor needed

I need a portable extra monitor for my laptop that lugs around easily in a laptop bag and is reasonably easy to see outdoors.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have an android phone or tablet, there is an app that allows you to connect it as a second monitor... don't know how good it is and there's always the possibility it's not going to work with your device.  Otherwise, I think ThinkGeek has a small monitor about tablet size that's USB based (but is not a tablet).  I've been thinking about getting one for my car to make a car-based computer and have that as a monitor - but again, this is something I have NOT directly played with.
