Tiny projectors are all the rage right now – gone are the days where projectors required a large surface area and ample distance from the wall or projector screen to function. To add to the list of such projectors, BenQ has a new model called the Joybee GP2. A successor to the GP1, it features the same black and white housing, but features enhancements such as an intuitive UI, 720p HD-video capability, short-throw projection, an integrated iPhone/iPod dock, a 3-hour battery pack and a multitude of connectivity options.
The projector has a brightness of 200 ANSI lumen and can project a 44″ image a mere 1 meter away from the surface. With the iOS dock, users can control the projector via their iOS device for easy sharing of the content on their iPhone/iPod touch. The projector has 2-W speakers built-in though audio outputs let you connect it to something more powerful. It features a USB port, SD card viewer, mini HDMI input, and it even has 2GB of onboard storage for you to store your files.
The BenQ Joybee GP2 is available now with an MSRP of $549 and will be shown off at CES 2012. Find out more.
