Based on high-efficiency 3LED illumination and DLP projection technology, the light and compact 565-gram palm-sized BenQ Joybee GP2 offers A/V multimedia on the go. With the projector's plug-and-play operation and 200 ANSI lumen brightness, users can share HD-quality presentations, videos, photos, and games on a 160-inch cinematic display. Dedicated iPhone/iPod controls on the GP2 Projector's included remote control make it easy to play audio through the unit's built-in speakers or through external speakers via the Audio Out port. Built to travel, the GP2 Projector comes with a new carrying case that features a dedicated pocket for the power adaptor.

The BenQ Joybee GP2 is packed with multimedia connectivity including USB and SD card viewers, a document viewer for Microsoft Office and PDF documents, and mini HDMI for tablets and smartphones. A USB display feature allows users to connect their computers to the mini projector using a USB cable -- no driver required -- while the USB file transfer function lets them transfer their multimedia files to the unit's 2GB of on-board memory storage.

The BenQ Joybee GP2 is available now at an MSRP of $699.
