I need to buy new monitor for my PC and I'm thinking about touch enabled monitors like DELL ST2220T or IIYAMA T2250MTS. I recently bought Gooseberry Board with Android on it and it would be great if I could connect it by HDMI cable to one of these monitors and use touch screen like i would on a tablet. Does anybody know if Android can work with such touch enabled monitors? Maybe someone have touch enabled monitor and could check it somehow?

The touch-screen part of a touch-screen monitor doesn't work over HDMI, but with a separate USB interface. It requires drivers specific to that monitor. To make it work with the Gooseberry Board under Android you'd have to find or write drivers for that monitor.
