Portable Android Projector To Light Up Movie Night

Portable Android Projector To Light Up Movie Night

Holy smokes did this Android projector just sell out in two days on Amazon? Pity. It’d make a sweet tool for impromptu movie screenings.

The battery-powered Tursion TS-102b Smart Pico Projector will project a 100-inch picture at reasonable brightness. It looks about the size of a fancy steak, and at under 170g, it weighs about as much, too. The TS-102 is also a flexible little 624 Mhz machine sporting 8GB of internal storage with a Micro SD slot expandable up to 16GB; connections for mini USB, USB, and an optical out, in case the built in speaker isn’t good enough. The rechargeable battery is supposed to last 80 minutes — good enough for two episodes of Mad Men, but not enough for Lawrence of Arabia.

Sounds great, but why the hell can’t I buy it? The TS-102 was available on Amazon just two days ago, and there appears to be an older model still online now. At a reported price of $US450, it’s hard to believe a critical mass of MacBook wielding film students cleared the shelves. Someone get another shipment going, please! [Engadget]
