Acer have announced the K10 pico-projector, just 127 x 122mm and tipping the scales at a mere 550g. Based on Texas Instruments DLP technology with an LED lamp, the K10 can produce either a widescreen or 4:3 aspect SVGA resolution picture up to 60-inches diagonal at 2.4m.
Connections include S-Video mini DIN and D-Sub/VGA. The K10 has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and has both automatic and manual keystone correction. SXGA and WXGA+ resolutions can be forced, and the LED is apparently good for up to 20,000 hours of use.
Underneath there’s a tripod mounting screw, and the K10 can be powered by an Acer laptop battery for minimal wires. It’s expected to launch in January 2009, priced at around £299 ($443).
