Samsung enters pico-projector market

The growing pico-projector market is getting a jolt here at the Consumer Electronics Show, with announcements from a range of vendors. The latest company to enter the market is Samsung Mobile, announcing the MBP200 Pico Projector.

Weighing only 5.6 ounces, the MBP200 can project a viewing area up to a 50 inches in size. It can connect to a laptop or mobile phone, and includes a microSD card slot for accessing content. The MBP200 supports standard Microsoft Office and PDF formats for display.

The MBP200 has some cool features that make it stand out from other pico projectors we've seen. It has a 2.2-inch QVGA LCD preview screen, so you can make sure there aren't any glitches (or embarrassing vacation photos) in your presentation before you show it to your company's CEO. And for an instant projection screen, you can attach a piece of paper to the MBP200's hidden screen holder. The projector also has a 3.5-mm standard headphone jack as well as a built-in external speaker if you want to add audio to your presentation.

The MBP200 was named the CES Innovations 2009 Design and Engineering Best of Innovations in the wireless handset accessories category. The device will be available later this year.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
