Lancerlink of Japan has introduced its MPJ-101 mini projector that also functions pretty decently as a portable media player. Basically, this LCOS projector is a clone of the 3M mini projector, touting dimensions of 125mm x 55mm x 23mm while tipping the scales at 100 grams sans battery. The $1,000 price tag is rather prohibitive though, considering all that you get are :-
- 640 × 480 resolution
- 10 lumens brightness
- 1GB internal flash memory
- SD/SDHC/MMC/MS Pro memory card slot
- USB connectivity
- Two 0.5W speakers
Supported file formats (after inserting the memory card of your choice, of course) include MPEG-4 (AVI/ASF/MP4), H.264 (MP4)?MotionJPEG (AVI), MP3 and JPEG. MP4/ASF/AVI. Each purchase will come bundled with the ArcSoft Media Converter, so you can start toting around your favorite shows and movies on a memory card, viewing it whenever convenient. We wonder what the battery life is like for this though.
