Microvision plans to begin taking on-line orders through its web store at 12 noon (Eastern) starting on March 24 for the “Made for iPod” device. Microvision is introducing two product offerings in the U.S. — the Standard Edition Showwx and the Limited Edition Showwx promotional bundle.
The laser pico projector Standard Edition comes with accessories and an optional VGA dock to connect to a variety of mobile devices. The iPhone-sized Standard Edition is priced at $549.
To celebrate the introduction of the world’s first laser pico projector based on Microvision’s PicoP technology in the United States, Microvision is offering U.S. customers an opportunity to purchase a $999 Limited Edition Showwx bundle. It comes with a personalized splash screen bearing the name of its owner, Showwx with “Limited Edition” insignia, certificate of authenticity and a Showwx VGA dock plus other accessories not included with the Standard Edition.
The Showwx laser-based pico projector’s fatures include a native resolution of WVGA (848 X 480), plug-and-play use, “fiddle-free” infinite focus, a high contrast ratio, and more. Users simply connect the Showwx to any mobile device with TV or VGA out (iPod, laptop, etc.) and project DVD-quality images from a mobile device, up to 200-inch across, depending on the ambient light.
