Hands-on with Lenovo’s handy pocket phone projector [VIDEO]



Projectors are not just for PowerPoint presentations anymore. We’ve seen some cool new projectors at the last few trade shows, and Mobile World Congress is no different. Lenovo is showing off a compact pocket-sized projector. This device can connect to a number of devices, and easily be thrown in a bag or carried in a pocket. It’s pretty nifty.

The whole thing is only about 4-inches square and 1-inch thick. Speakers are built right into the projector, which means this little gadget is all you need to project movies.  To play a video on the projector you’ll need a device that supports DLNA and Miracast. Unfortunately videos only play in 480p, but with a device of this size and price (only $250) that’s what you get. The Lenovo Pocket Projector will go on sale later this month.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

  1. This is one of those areas that is going to see a huge advance in tech in the next few years.

    1. I fully agree…

    2. The LG Expo with the Pico Projector? I had that phone, but the projector took forever to come out. I was a broke college student, so I couldn’t afford to get the projector. LoL!! I was mad since I had the money for it at the time of the phone purchase, but couldn’t get it. I wanted to amaze my friends. =.P

  2. I read “pocket phone projector” as “pocket protector”, and was baffled…

  3. 480p..OK…but what’s the largest screen size?

    1. I believe 101 inches.

  4. 50 lumens… LOL Is that a typo or are they serious? Projectors should have a minimum of 1000 lumens if you want to see anything in a regularly lit room, and bulbs lose brightness with time, so I’d hate too see how this thing looks after a year. Not everyone going to a sales meeting with have the luxury of perfect darkness (It would still be dim).

  5. awesome!

  6. Superfish enabled for ad injection on every wall you project on. lol jk sorry I couldn’t help it.

  7. I own an Optoma LED pico projector. It’s 60 lumens output and the resolution is 854 x 480

    In a dark room the picture is superb- not pixelated at all and the screen size is 70″ diagonal.

    The picture is a shot of my screen from 6ft away and the image is 70″ diagonal on the wall
