Toshiba's amazing pocket projector quietly demonstrated

SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. -- Toshiba quietly showed a very cool-looking LED pocket projector at Europe's IFA 2008. The device is about the size of an HTC Touch Pro, but throws up 10 Lumen of light. I don't have much information, but I do have a picture and a video demonstrating brightness.

The projector is just 100 grams in weight, and
10 x 4.5 x 1.7 cm in size.

This isn't the first pocket-sized projector. To the best of my knowledge, I've written about all of them in this space as they were announced or shipped. But the Toshiba LED Pico Projector looks especially sleek and cool, while remaining business-like. Plus, it's from Toshiba, rather than some tiny company nobody's ever heard of. 

I'll keep you posted on this amazing project as details emerge.
