At Mobile World Congress 2012, Taiwanese projector and camcorder maker Aiptek introduced two new projectors designed for use with Apple’s popular iPhone. The MobileCinema i20 attaches to the phone’s 30-pin dock port and also provides charging. Resolution, brightness and other specs were not disclosed. Aiptek also introduced an iPhone 4/4S battery sleeve with an embedded pico projector. The DLP based projector produces 50 lumens, but resolution and other specs were not disclosed.
PMA’s in depth projector market research anticipates the introduction of more iPhone projector sleeves over the coming year as vendors rush to catch up with this phenomenon.
