The Samsung MBP200 Pico Projector is the reason that you’re about to get excited about a little concept we in technologies like to call “convergence.” Half portable media player, half portable projector and thoroughly excellent, the MBP200 Pico Projector is the convergence device (items that serve multiple functions), that is begging to converge itself right into your backpack.

The MBP200 is a compact portable projector designed to connect directly to mobile phones and laptops to bring your presentations on the road. Weighing in at just 160-grams, the Pico Projector is capable of projecting on a surface as small as a sheet of paper up to a 50-inch viewing area.

The Pico Projector natively supports PDF and Microsoft Office standard file formats, while support for microSD (in capacities up to 16 GB) allow the device to display content independently.

With its 2.2-inch QVGA LCD screen, 3.5-milimeter headphone jack and built-in speaker, the MBP200 conveniently doubles as a portable media player (PMP). The device supports common audio formats like MP3, WMA and OGG, and popular video codecs such as DivX and Xvid.
