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

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.

If we told you there was a way you could get a custom HD projector for under €499 ($704) with DVI and HDMI inputs, you might go so far as to give your left arm for such a device.  Unfortunately that would be the wrong idea, as you'd probably need that arm to put the projector together: you see, it's a DIY kit, and according to German tinkerer Maxi Huber it's the best piece of home entertainment kit he's bought in some time.

Samsung have taken the wraps off of their latest pocket-projector, the P410M, and while you'd certainly need reasonably-sized pockets to carry it, it perhaps makes up for things by offering higher than usual specs.  The P410M boasts up to 800 x 600 resolution and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, together with inputs that include VGA, composite and a USB port.
