SYDNEY: Mint Trading has announced the release of the Aiptek V10 pocket projector, which the company claims is small enough to fit into the pocket of a pair of jeans.

The projector measures 125 x 55 x 23 millimetres, around the size of an iPhone, and is capable of projecting movies, photos and games up to 50 inches in size from 1.8 metres. Additionally, Mint boasts the pocket-sized projector does not need to warm up before starting, switches off immediately, and has a bulb life of 20,000 hours.

Whilst Mint concedes that the pocket projector could not possibly replace a traditional projector in the corporate sphere, the company claims it is sufficient for smaller commercial settings and is ideal for the general consumer.

The key features of the Aiptek V10 pocket projector are:

-3-in-1 AV jack with AV cable.
-1 gigabyte of in-built memory.
-SD/MMC card slot to expand memory to 32 gigabytes.
-Stereo speakers with 1-watt output.
-Rechargable lithium-ion battery with over 60 minutes running time.
-Plays MP4, AVI and ASF files, MP3 and JPEG.

The Aiptek V10 pocket projector will be available locally from September at RRP $649.
