Dell Puts SVGA Projector in Your Pocket for Only $500
Back in July, a leaked Powerpoint slide surfaced revealing Dell’s plan to release a pocket projector, but it didn’t say when or for how much. Those questions are answered today, along with a list of final specs.
For less than what some early adopters paid for a first-gen iPhone, Dell will sell you a pocket projector capable of an 858×600 (SVGA) resolution. The $500 Dell M109S On-the-Go Pocket-Sized projector checks in at 0.80 pounds (down from the Powerpoint slide’s target weight of 1.1 pounds) and will fit in the palm of your hand. Dell rates the M109S at 55 ANSI Lumens with a projection distance of 94.5 inches. And to keep the clutter down, the pint-sized projector uses the power adapter from a Latitude or Vostro laptop. True to the slide, the shipping version remains green with a mercury free LED source Dell says will last up to four years.
Look for availability in the US right away, with a global roll out in the coming months.
