Micron Technology’s upcoming Pop Video pico projector will beam video at the iPhone’s full 960 x 540 resolution for only $99. While some may patiently dream that the iPhone will some day come with a built-in pico projector, at least now they can pick up one that utilizes the phone’s full resolution for a fairly cheap price. The key feature with the Pop Video pico projector is its 30-pin connector that allows you to dock your iPhone or iPod so that it forms one compact unit. Since it’s designed to be more portable, it doesn’t have an integrated doc like larger pico projectors and it fits into a pocket when not in use. It weighs only 3.5 ounces with 4.4 inches x 1.8 inches x .6 inch (HWD) dimensions.
There’s also a corresponding Pop Video app that will allow you to tweak the images, and allows for you to projector more content directly from your iPhone, including Web pages, Facebook, and videos downloaded from iTunes or iTunes U that are not MPEG 3 protected. It features a built-in Lithium-ion rechargeable battery and on full charge, the portable pico projector can run for a good two hours. You’ll need a pretty dark space to project a pretty decent picture, but its low price certainly makes it a nice little accessory to have. It’s now available for pre-order.
