Canon Launches Latest Portable Mini Projector; It Is Everything We Could Possibly Want In A Projector & More

The MP250, loaded with smartphone mirroring, a built-in rechargeable battery and a HDMI interface built on an Android OS enters the market next month, retailing at RM2,199. 

The device can be used in many settings including the office, home-usage or even on-the-go. The sleek, ultra-lightweight design makes the MP250 a portable machine capable of throwing 93-inch images onto any wall or surface from a distance of three metres.

In terms of processor, the MP250 is powered by a quad-core 1.5GHZ processor and 2GB of SDRAM, allowing for 4K video input sources easily. Other features include a rechargeable battery that allows for marketed video playback of up to two hours.

Setup on this device is also a breeze with auto vertical keystone correction and auto image rotation doing the heavy lifting so images projected are accurate. The built-in base stand allows the device to project at up to a 40° angle on a flat office desk, while a built-in 1/4″ tripod mount ensures that the projector is compatible with different tripod stands.

Not only that, the device includes a touchpad supporting cursor navigation and virtual keyboard entry, allowing the navigation with ease. It also features 2-finger gesture inputs, such as pinch-to-zoom and speed scrolling for users to navigate long menus and websites without the need for external input devices. However, users can use keyboards and mice as they are supported via USB or Bluetooth connection.

With a built-in web browser, videos can be streamed directly over the Internet, while users of Android phones or tablets can mirror their screens and share holiday snapshots from albums, videos, and other multimedia content. With 4GB of built-in device memory, users can also store videos, photos, and office documents such as Word, PowerPoint and PDF files. The MP250 comes with standard HDMI, USB-A port and Micro SD card slot. The MP250 also supports dual band wireless connection.
