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.
