Technology is definitely advancing when it comes to pocket projectors these days, with manufacturers increasing resolutions and adding extra features. Today we have news about Vivitek Corporation’s new Qumi, which is in fact the very first pocket projector to be 3D-ready.

According to a recent article over at businesswire.com, the Vivitek Qumi HD LED pocket projector is now available to purchase both online and in retail stores, with an MSRP of $499. The device weighs in at just 1.4 pounds, and is 3D-ready via Texas Instruments’ DLP Link technology.

The Qumi features a sleek design and touch sensitive buttons, and is ready to use with a number of different devices including (but not limited to) smartphones, laptops, tablet PCs and digital cameras. It also comes with a 720p native WXGA (11280 x 800) resolution.

Connectivity options on the Vivitek Qumi include Universal I/O (24-pin connector for component/VGA input), AV mini-jack audio out, USB, mini HDMI and microSD card slots for memory expansion and content. Other features include a 2500:1 contrast ratio and a brightness of up to 300 lumens.

The Vivitek Qumi LED pocket projector comes with an integrated 1W speaker, provides around 30,000 plus LED hours of operation and is offered in both a white or black finish. Are you thinking about buying a new pocket projector?

    This is fantastic news. I have been waiting for this truly amazing product to become available in the market ever since it was officially announced at the CES. This projector is going to raise the bar for other projector manufacturers & will also probably set various benchmarks to follow. But, err… Vivitek has not mentioned about Qumi Q2′s LED light source’s specification anywhere. I was curious to know if this projector has a RGB based 3 LED light source or a single White LED light source. If anybody knows please do let me know. Thanks in advance.
