Increasing demand from Americas and Asia-Pacific coupled with growing adoption by SMEs to augment global pico projector market through 2019 Ever since their introduction in the global market in 2009, pico projectors have revolutionized the global projector market. Although the market is still in nascent stage, the demand for pico projectors has been registering significant growth over the last few years. Key factors driving the global pico projector market include rising demand from emerging markets, expanding SMB segment, increasing IT spending and rising mobile workforce across the globe. In 2013, global pico projector sales registered a two-fold increase compared to 2012. During its initial years, the market for stand-alone pico projectors witnessed lower adoption due to high pricing and low confidence of customers towards small sized projectors.

Sprint LivePro
July 24, 2014
Part mobile hotspot, part projector, and part Android tablet, the ZTE-made Sprint LivePro ($449.99 or $299.99 with a two-year contract) is an audacious digital multi-tool. This Franken-device made its debut at CES, where it simultaneously left us in awe and scratching our heads. It's a self-contained, portable presentation room or home theater, depending on your needs. But is it an unholy matrimony of mobile tech, or are ZTE and Sprint onto something? For the vast majority of people, the LivePro will simply be too expensive and not useful enough to justify the cost. If you need a hotspot, grab the Netgear Zing Mobile Hotspot, our reigning Editors' Choice on Sprint. If you need a portable projector, check out the AAXA P4-X Pico Projector, another Editors' Choice. But if you do find yourself constantly on the road, giving impromptu presentations or entertaining unruly kids, the LivePro could be a godsend, thanks to its no-hassle, all-in-one design.

Panasonic Toughpad 4K Performance (UT-MA6)
July 21, 2014
When Panasonic first showed off the Toughpad 4K at CES, we were gobsmacked. Incredible 4K resolution on a huge screen! A portable tablet design! It was exciting because the Panasonic Toughpad 4K was unlike anything else we had seen: a large-screen tablet, with rugged business utility built in. Fast forward to today, and we find ourselves a bit stymied for many of the same reasons. The Panasonic Toughpad 4K Performance (UT-MA6) ($6,999 as tested) is ostensibly made for professionals, but it's anodd product that doesn't fit neatly into any oneproduct category.

Acer C205
July 18, 2014
The Acer C205 ($349) is designed for businesspeople who need to give presentations in small rooms. This modestly priced, palmtop-size projector is highly portable, but its connection choices are limited to HDMI and MHL. Although it's brighter than the Editors' Choice AAXA P4-X Pico Projector, the AAXA has better image quality for both data and video, and more connection choices including the ability to project from microSD cards and USB thumb drives. The C205 is an LED-based DLP projector with a rated brightness of 200 lumens and native WVGA (854-by-480) resolution. Acer claims a lamp life of up to 20,000 hours in Standard mode and 30,000 hours in Eco mode, so the light source should last the lifetime of the projector.
