Pico to be sold online
Optoma has announced that its Pico PK-101 projector will be sold through Amazon and BestBuy.com. The company will also offer the device through the Japanese Apple stores, as reported earlier this week. The projector uses Texas Instruments' Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology to deliver a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 at 480 pixel by 320 pixel resolution. All of the internal components fit into a case that measures two inches by 4.1 inches by 0.7 inches, with a weight of four ounces.
Connection with the video source is provided by a 2.5mm A/V composite mini-jack, with adaption options for other devices. The company claims a battery life of 1.5 hours, with a USB cable provided for recharging. The Pico PK-101 will begin shipping on December 15th, and carries a suggested price of $400.
