Aiptek Pocket Projector Can Probably Shine Larger Than Your TVS

Continuing an increasingly apparent trend at Computex, Aiptek is planning to show their new PocketCinema V10 mini-projector, which they say is rated to display images up to a diagonal 50 inches. Details are still a little slim at the moment, but Aiptek has released a basic spec set, claiming a support for MPEG-4 video, JPEG stills, a 3-in-1 input jack (that's as specific as they get), 1gb of onboard storage, and SD/MMC/MS Pro expansion capability.

What Aiptek means by "50 inches," though, isn't clear. A 50-inch image is theoretically possible with any small projector, but not without serious degradation and fade. Since Aiptek gadgets have developed a somewhat somewhat patchy reputation, and there are no details yet as to the brightness and resolution of the 3M-based unit, the claim should probably be taken with a grain of salt.
