Acer Announces Smartphone-Sized LED Pico Projector

The projector weighs 6.34 ounces and has a foot print the size of an average smartphone(4.7x3.2x1.0 inches). The C120 is powered via USB 3.0 and offers both a 16:9 aspect ratio at WVGA resolution (854x480) or at the maximum resolution WXGA (1280x800) in a 16:10 aspect ratio.

The Acer C120 has a wide projection throw range -- it can project clearly from as close as 15.75 inches and as far as 12.14 feet away.

The projector delivers a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a luminous flux of 75 ANSI lumens, according to Acer. The LED lightsource is estimated to last about 20,000 hours.

"We've designed the Acer C120 projector to be a powerful tool for businesspeople, consultants, real estate agents and anyone who needs an ultra-portable projector that will make their presentations even more effective," said Chris White, senior director of product marketing, Acer America. "It's very convenient to use and provides a range of usage scenarios, making it the ideal companion for anyone that gives presentations on the go."

The C120 is available now for a suggested retail price of $259.

    That's small. Sometimes manufacturers build something too small that I don't know what their target is. Not everything in this world needs to be very small. If it's the size of something like the asus P1 projector, that's seems appropriate.

    So this is aimed at the business end right? Well since when do businesses run those weird resolutions?
