Sanyo XW60 projector

Sanyo has debuted a new business projector, the LP-XW60. The system is described as one of the "smallest and lightest" of its type, having such little weight that it can easily be carried with one hand. It is also designed to be easy to set up, with an automatic keystone feature that adjusts the projector's alignment on uneven surfaces. Images can be anywhere from 40 to 300 inches in size, requiring distances from a screen between 3.6 and 32.9 feet.

The lamp in the XW60 produces 2,000 lumens, with a 400:1 contrast. The system also has a native resolution of 1024x768, but only supports RCA video and voice inputs, lacking the DVI connections common to other business projectors. The unit should first go on sale in Japan, at a cost of 207,900 yen ($2,042). [via Akihabara News]

    Claims are false...

    I've carried a NEC LT10 in my laptop bag (and used it for hundreds of hours ... projector keeps records!) since January of 2005. It's specs show that it's smaller and lighter than the Sanyo:
