It looks like Acer is the newest company to jump into the pocket projector pool. Recently, they announced that their K10 pocket projector will be released sometime in January. The K10 uses the same DLP display technology that is used in the Optoma Pico projector and the Toshiba pocket projector. Acer’s model is a little more box shaped than the other models and weighs only 1.2 lbs. The K10 features a 1000:1 contrast ratio as well as an SVGA (800 x 600), which is one of the higher resolutions found in the pocket projector category. The projector does not have any composite connections, but instead comes with an s-video and a VGA connection. The K10 uses an LED as a lamp source that provides both low energy consumption and an estimated 20000 hour lamp life. Acer has not announced if the K10 has an internal battery, but it can be powered by connecting it to your laptop or PC, instead of using a power cord. Acer plans to retail this projector for about Â£299 ($443).
