Can it earn a permanent place in our bag? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

AAXA P2 pico-projector: VGA input but just 35 mins battery

AAXA have unveiled their new pico-projector, the P2, and at first glance there's plenty to endear the palm-sized device.  The resolution gets a boost to 800 x 600 while brightness also climbs to 33 lumens; even better, there's a standard VGA input along with the usual onboard media player, 1GB of integrated storage and microSD card slot.  Unfortunately, the thorn in the P2's side is its battery life.
