MWC 2015 is chocked full of new and exciting tech, and among all the smartphone releases is a cool new gadget for media lovers. Lenovo isn’t the first name you think of when it comes to mobile accessories, but we hope the Lenovo Pocket Projector is the first of many mobile gadgets set to roll out from the company this year.

The Lenovo Pocket Projector is what it sounds like – a small projector that fits in your pocket. It’s geared to allow folks streaming video on the go, and it’s going to use another device that’s usually found in your pocket. The projector can take media from your smartphone or tablet and throw it up on the surface of your choosing, and its fairly svelte at 4.1 x 3.9 x .98” with a weight of .37 pounds. As for content, it can stream from your mobile or PC with wirelessly or you can pop in a microSD card for local streaming.

One of the cool things about the Lenovo Pocket Projector is the way it allows you to rotate the “lens” upwards to 90 degrees. The resolution is a bit low at 854 x 480, but should be sufficiently bright with a max of 50 lumens. That said, the viewing area is large as the Pocket Projector allows for images up to 110 inches. Rounding things out are built-in speakers, a 3.5mm jack, and a battery that’s said to offer up around 2.5 hours of juice on a charge.

We don’t have an exact date for the Lenovo Pocket Projector release, but it is scheduled to arrive later this month. It will set you back $199 in regions and shops where Lenovo’s products are sold.
