Lenovo had several new products ready to take part in the Mobile World Congress: in addition to the introduction of Dolby Atmos technology in several smartphones and tablets or the presentation of the promising Lenovo Vibe Shot, there was another surprise in store: lenovo pocket projector for mobile.
This tiny device weighs 170 grams and fits into almost any pocket. The design is striking for combining a module with LED lamps with DLP technology and another in which the projector is controlled and also provides support for other modules that can rotate and orient the height that interests us .
An accessory that can save us in many situations
The manufacturer already introduced this idea in the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, and has now decided to take advantage and create an accessory that anyone who wishes can be a part of the experience. The device has an internal battery that has a range of up to 2 hours and can play content via DLNA or Miracast, send content with a microSD card or connect your mobile phone to the micro USB port Also included in the pocket projector .
The device interface, very basic but functional, lets one navigate the directory tree associated with the device or card, then select content with the cross which is found on the surface of the projector and which allows the interface to be controlled.
The projector provides 50 lumens of brightness – the Yoga 2 Pro tablet reaches 100 – and allows for a diagonal of up to 110 inches. The resolution, however, is very modest: 854 x 480 pixels, and even though we can see it in operation – the still very green prototype shown at the fair – the orientation is clear: it’s not oriented to enjoy quality video content is a mobile device, but also to aid in presentations or situations where we can share that viewing image, a video and limited quality photos.
The price will be $199 when it goes on sale in June, but for now this version is only compatible with Android version 4.3 and above, with eventual sales also supporting iOS and Windows Phone devices.
