Acer ships Acer ultraportable palm-sized pico projector

Instead of Full HD video, the C120 pocket-sized pico projector delivers only WXGA (1280 by 800) resolution — but it costs only $260.

Acer America says its new portable device is “ideal for business people, instructors and anyone who needs an incredibly portable projector to display clear, crisp images.” The C120 can project clearly from as close as 15.75 inches, and as far as 12.14 feet away, Acer adds.

The unit has a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 60–120 percent NTSC color saturation, Acer says. The LED light is rated for a 20,000-hour life, and projects 75 ANSI lumens brightness when running on a PC’s USB power, or 100 lumens when on AC electricity.

“It is incredibly compact, so it can fit in a purse or briefcase,” the company says measuring 4.72 by 3.23 by 1 inches, and weighing 6.34 ounces.
