    AAXA has a new Pico projector set to be released August 15. It's called the P2. It's the P1's big brother. Better resolution, stereo speakers and it comes with a tripod. They have an input cable for the Ipod Touch and iPhone. Of course it does not work with 3.0 OS. Thank Apple for that. If anyone is interested, go to http://www.aaxatech.com/news/P2_release.htm

    Do any of you guys actually use one of these? They look like cute toys, but is this really useful in the business world?

    It's not so much a business toy, but rather a great way to share a video with family or friends that don't want to crowd around the LCD screen. Turn out the lights and find a white wall to project on. The P2's increased resolution is approaching PC screen size, but the lumen output is still too low for anything but a pitch black room.

    Hey, I just got mine:

    It can be used as a business presentation tool, but make sure you keep the presentation small! It's not going to compete with a 2000 lumen business projector if you have a 30 people room. Conversely if you drop it once or twice you won't break the bulb (I have broken so many business projectors) and it's battery powered.

    Actually that's not true! The AAXA P2 is actually bright enough to work with light coming in. I'm received mine 3 weeks ago and I'm very impressed!

    I'll write a review, let me grab some pictures

    Why not?

    Considering the Iphone outputs at 640x480 and some pico projectors are not even 640x480 resolution I don't see why 800x600 is a problem.

    This isn't a home theater projector, it is a battery powered projector - I can watch videos, browse websites just fine. Granted 800x600 native can be annoying on certain websites but it will accept a 1280x768 input...

    You don't expect your laptop to have the same processing power as your desktop right?

    800x600 is not good for presenting the data I need to present. Most spreadsheets won't fit into 1024x768 without scrolling an excessive amount. Given this thing has a HD15 input, the iPhone isn't its only target.
