FAVI Launches All-in-One Android Based Projector

I wouldn’t base my home theater around a small OTT in the box projector, but I do find systems like that to be quite useful for impromptu viewing around the house or while traveling so it’s great to see more players entering the space – especially as the functionality embedded into the projector/player expands.

FAVI just announced one of these mobile, battery powered projectors, but instead of leveraging a Roku Stick it embedded Android 4.2.2 in the device so you can get access to pretty much all that the Play store has to offer for content and games. Native resolution is 854×480, so it’s not going to have that crisp HD look, but for there were always going to be some tradeoffs for mobility.

PR after the click.

  • I paid $220 for a tiny Qumi

    I paid $220 for a tiny Qumi LED projector (1280×800) and the chromecast hooked to it was $30.  While the Pico+ seems interesting, at that price point, anyone with a decent phone can do the same for 1/2 the cost and get better specs out of the setup.  Maybe I’m just not the target audience, but I find it hard to see the appeal for the cost of it.
