Promate LumiTab Android Tablet Features a DLP Pico-Projector

Back in 2011 & 2012, we saw some Android products with a pico-projector, including a lightbulb running Android, but pico-projectors never really seemed to be embedded into consumers products. Promate, however, decided to add one of those to one of their Android tablets. Promate Lumitab would just be a typical Android 4.2 tablet with a 7″ touchscreen, a dual core processor (OMAP4460), 1GB RAM, 16GB flash, if it did not also come with a DLP pico-projector capable of outputting an image up to 100″ (254 cm).

I’m not quite sure how readable text will be with a 854×480 resolution with an image scaled to 100″, but for a presentation with large characters it may be readable. Watching SD movies would be fine as well… DLP pico-projector technology used in this product is also from Texas Instruments, and the specs look somewhat similar (a little bit better) to their DLP Lightcrafter Pico-projector module.

There’s no availability nor pricing information at this time.

It would be really cool if there was a decent mini PC with a pico-projector for less then 50€.

Thanks . The first one you mentioned looks interesting but I’m not sure how usable it would be with that resolution. I wonder if my netbook that runs Windows 7 would detect it as a 1024×768 display or it would detect the exact resolution of 320×240.

Looks like a rebadged SmartQ U7. They’re even using a touched up version of the U7’s promo image.
