If diminutive, portable projectors catch your eye on the regular, Vivitek's latest may be worth a gander. The outfit has announced the Qumi Q7 HD LED pocket projector at CES, touting up to 800 lumens of brightness and a 30,000:1 contrast ratio. Packing 720p native WXGA resolution at 1,280 x 800, the unit is also 3D-capable thanks to Texas Instrument's DLP Link and sports 2D to 3D content conversion tech. In terms of connections, the Q7 wields HDMI, VGA, composite video, RCA audio-in and USB ports alongside 4GB of built-in storage. All of this is packed into a 3.1-pound (1.4kg) frame that measures 6.3 inches (16cm) x 4.3 inches (10.9cm) and is 1.3 inches (3.3cm) thick. If the list of specs piques your interest, you have until sometime this summer to save up the $999 it'll take to snag one. Looking for a few more details? The full PR lies just beyond the break with just that.
