Pico projectors are a dime a dozen these days, and most of them aren't too different from any other. Most are small enough to slip inside a pocket, and most have native resolutions of just 640x480. Most require a reasonably dark room to perform, and some of them have internal batteries to give users some flexibility away from the AC outlet.... Read more...
Up until now two major things have evaded AT&T: an Android phone and Snapdragon. If you're unfamiliar with the second, Snapdragon is a new mobile CPU that can be clocked as high as 1GHz, and the phones based on that CPU are understandably quick. Starting this week, AT&T will at least be able to say that it stocks a 1GHz smartphone... Read more...
Optoma may have ushered in the age of the pico projector, but it seems like Microvision is forging ahead with round two. The hotly anticipated SHOW WX pico projector is finally about to make its way into the hands of consumers, as the company has just revealed that it has received a purchase order from its Asian...

Pico projectors may be all the rage right now, but they certainly aren't for everyone. They may be small and handy to carry, but the limited resolution and input selection (not to mention lofty price) generally keeps them from breaking out into the mainstream. InFocus is hoping to capitalize on the market on "in-betweeners," or folks that... Read more...
Ah, the pico projector. About a year ago, you couldn't look over your shoulder without seeing yet another company come forward with a 640x480 projector that could be shoved in the average pocket, but now that the novelty has worn off, just a few outfits are sticking with it. One of those determined companies is none other than Microvision,... Read more...
One could say the pico projector boom is over, and now we're seeing a slow trickle of second-gen devices from companies that bothered to stick with the niche. Without a doubt, these expensive, tiny devices never really took off in the mainstream market, but ViewSonic is hoping to catch some eyes with two new ones in... Read more...
When a company spells "Extreme" as "Xtreme," it generally means that whatever product has said label is underwhelming and over-hyped. Not so with Runco's latest, which deserve every bit of "Xtremeness" given to them. The new VX-33i and VX-33d projectors are less like AV toys and more like investments, with prices so high that you'll probably... Read more...
It's often considered the holy grail of projectors, but until now, it's been largely absent from existence: the sub-$1000 1080p beamer. Vivitek, which just entered the flooded PJ market last year, is looking to cement itself as one of the mainstays this year with a Full HD projector priced below the $1000 barrier. The H1080FD is aimed at home... Read more...

You're probably pretty proud of that 24" LCD that you use to play the hottest titles at 1080p or above, but what if we told you those same games (and those same resolutions) could be seen on a 150" screen -- and you wouldn't even need a home theater space to make it happen? Now that we have your attention, take a close look at the coffin-like... Read more...
One of the more curious items spied at this week's Computex trade show in Taipei, is an Asus laptop prototype with a built-in mini projector. There is still not too much known about the unlabeled notebook, other than that the laptop has a large space above the display's bezel, in which a working, pivoting mini projector is housed.  Mini...
