AIPTEK releases a new projector tablet to compete with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet Pro 2

AIPTEK, a small electronics company that generally produces pico projectors has recently released a new product that is out of the norm for their business, a tablet projector called the P70.

This is an interesting development in AIPTEK’s product line as previously they were known for cases for phones that included small projectors or also standalone pico projectors.  The company has not previously developed a tablet or a device with a fully integrated pico projector yet but honestly the P70 seems like a good start.

The built in projector is a DLP unit capable of 50 lumens and a resolution of 854×480 which are almost the same specs available in the Lenovo Yoga Tablet Pro 2 and is accomplished im a much smaller package.

The actual P70 tablet has a 7″ capacitive touch screen running at a resolution of 1024×600 which isn’t the highest we’ve seen on a 7″ tablet, for instance the popular Nexus 7 runs at 1920×1200.  It also sports a Quad Core cpu, 16GB of internal storage, and a 5mp rear camera making this device straight average with other tablets in its size and price class.

Right now the P70 is so new that there aren’t very many reviews out on it and we haven’t even been able to get our hands on one to test as they’ve been out of stock since launch on Amazon.

If you’re interested in a tablet and are also looking at pico projectors or some way to share your tablets screen then the P70 is definiately a great and economical option to the Lenovo Yoga Tablet Pro 2.

The retail price of the P70 is currently: $369

Here is a link to it’s amazon page: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OV36Z5G/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00OV36Z5G&linkCode=as2&tag=picoprojector-20&linkId=RZ7HLBIMIRXNM2F6

We’ll be covering more on this device as more information comes out on it and hopefully we can get our hands on one so that we can do an in-depth review.

Syndiant Selected by Cremotech and SK Telecom for it’s Laser HD Pico Projector

Syndiant is a leader in pico projector engines, they make engines for pretty much all of the major companies out there, 3M, AAXA, etc.  At CES last week they announced a partnership with Cremotech, which is a Korean company who is working on a few technologies for mobile devices.

Cremotech has chosen the Syndiant SYL2271 HD Laser Panel, which is a triple-laser engine delivering 720P brightness.  The laser engine also offers the functionality of being focus-free, meaning a user does not need to focus the projector at all.

The Syndiant engine is also labeled as “Speckle-free”, in older laser engines, you would notice some amount of Speckle on the image due to it being a laser.  Newer engines have reduced the amount of this on the image and now can provide a pretty great image.

We’re hoping this leads to other companies picking up laser again, as we think the ability to have infinite focus is a pretty great benefit, and an added convenience for customers.  We’re hoping that Cremotech releases something using this engine later this year, once it’s out we’ll definitely be taking a better look at it.
