It is not a projector, but I thought many of folks here will embrace the latest coolest Palm-based PDA from Sony. Well, it sports a high-res (in PDA's perspective) TFT color LCD that is 4x the existing Palm resolution. A kind of like HDTV is about 4x the resolution of DVD. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

You can pre-order it at Sony's site. The estimate shipping date is 5/28/01. You can cancel when you are notify by e-mail when Sony is ready to ship. It is the first Palm device to sport 320x320 hi-res color TFT display, and built-in audio player (MP3 or ATRAC4). And yes, it can even play video clips or display half-decent digital photo of your loved ones. Done let the marketing hypes of the competitions fool you that Sony is 8 bit color while other 160x160 color Palm is 16 bit. This display is most gorgeous one there is on PDAs with 4x pixels of existing ones.


A detailed description of Janpanese color Clie'. Major difference is no MP3 on Japanese, only Sony's ATRAC4 similar to the Minidisc:

Some reviews on publications:

Walt Mossberg usually do a pretty fair review - much more objective than the PC publication bigots: http://ptech.wsj.com/ptech.html

The usual lame review by ZDnet on Sony products: http://www.zdnet.com/supercenter/sto...479387,00.html

There are similar one on Cnet.com
