LumiTab Features a Built-in Projector for Your Viewing Pleasure

Wednesday, May 1st 2013. | Mobile Phones

Apparently, it’s not only Samsung who believes that a projector can be a great additional feature for its mobile devices. A manufacturing company called Promate recently unveiled the world’s first tablet to offer built-in projector for users. The thing is called LumiTab, a 7-incher that looks a little bulky for my taste.

If you haven’t known it, Samsung Galaxy Beam was released last year, touting the exact same feature. Although the handset didn’t seem to perform well in the consumer market, it doesn’t prevent Promate from walking the same path. Unless you’re super busy businessmen whose lives are all about PowerPoint presentations, you might want to skip on this.

Main specifications include a 1.5GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and 1GB of RAM. Yes, it’s pretty humble and the only way it can look outstanding is by taking it back to three or four yearsago. Still, I appreciate that it comes with 16GB of internal storage, something that is missing from recent flagship devices including the mighty Galaxy S4.

Thanks to the provided microSD card slot, hardcore users don’t have to get frustrated when they run out of space on the integrated disk. The 7-inch display boasts a native resolution of 1024 x 600. That already low resolution decreases even further in the streamed content as the 35-lumen projector has a native resolution of 854 x 480 pixels.

Pricing details aren’t disclosed yet but don’t expect it to be cheap because even with such down-to-earth specifications, the novelty it has for featuring built-in projector is enough to justify steep cost.
