At CES 2009, we saw a few fun pico projectors, but none that knew how to multitask like the Samsung MBP200.
The MBP200 is nice and compact, so users can throw up big-screen images on the fly. However, if a nice big surface isn’t available, the unit has a nifty built-in 2.2-inch QVGA LCD screen.
Perfect for your pocket, this projector can connect to mobile phones and laptops—as long as they are Samsung. DVICE says that the jack is proprietary instead of the standard fare, which makes it slightly lame, no? If you’re willing to chance it, the unit does have a microSD card slot. Inside is Texas Instruments’ DLP pico chip, which should deliver some decent images.
Promising a 50-inch viewing screen, this pint-sized projector isn’t for every day viewing, but it certainly is fun. How much that fun will cost you is anyone’s guess. Expect the MBP200 to be available later this year.
