Aiptek, a Taiwanese electronics firm, has released a series of portable video projectors made specifically for Apple iOS and Google Android devices. This new range includes a sleeve-type projector for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, a dongle-type projector for the iPad, and a Pad-style projector for Android devices which will allow users to project videos, movies, images, games or websites onto walls from their devices with a screen size of up to 60 inches. The projectors will have a brightness of 35 lumens and 640×480 (VGA) pixel resolution.
The Mobile Cinema I50S for the iPhone 4 and 4S is capable of projecting movies or images for up to 2 hours without needing to be charged. When its built-in battery is connected, the iPhone can also be charged up to 80 percent so all the battery life isn’t sucked out of the phone while it’s working.
Apple’s closed source developer code called for an app to be developed for the Mobile Cinema I50S and I50D to work, so “Aiptek Viewer” will be available for free with these projector models. No app will be needed for the Android projector to work. The Mobile Cinema A50P for Android should work with all Android devices that support the Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) interface.
Aiptek has not yet confirmed about the specific release dates and prices for these new variety of projectors but it seems at least UK citizens can expect to see these projectors start rolling out this summer in July throughout September, starting with the I50S for iPhone 4 and 4S.
