First look: the Philips PicoPix Pocket projector
Dutch manufacturer’s new mobile device is perfect for showing videos on the go – and is compatible with smartphones
It runs on Android software, so you dont need a laptop or PC and offers 100 lumens of light when connected to the mains – 55 lumens when running from its rechargeable battery.
The device measures 105 x 105 x 31.5mm and weighs 284g, so ideal for showing content on the move.
It will also beam a screen size up to 120-inches (304.8cms) wide. The pixel resolution of only 854 x 480 is not great for cinema but it runs on Android 2.3.1, so can handle files stored on a USB drive without the need for an extra source.
The new Philips projector is also Wi-Fi-enabled and includes native support for a mouse and keyboard.
Because of the Android OS, there’s also a web browser on board, and DLNA compatibility means it can be used to stream content from external network boxes – even smartphones, which is why we are interested in the PicoPix PPX 3610.
It comes with a mini HDMI port and can accept an SD card for extra storage. There’s also a handy 4GB internal storage packed into the device.
It will be available in the UK and Europe in July for €499 euros (£379).
