The LumiTab combines a tablet and a portable projector for the first time
We've witnessed a few modest attempts by some manufacturers to put pico-projectors in phones, with the most notable example being Samsung's Galaxy Beam, but needless to say, these products haven't managed to generate any real buzz. But just because phones with projectors haven't gained any momentum doesn't mean that tablets with projectors won't! Or at least, that seems to be what Promate is thinking, as it has just announced the LumiTab - the first tablet... with a built-in pico-projector!

In contrast to the Galaxy Beam's 15 lumen projector, the one in the LumiaTab should be much stronger with its 35 lumen. The tablet should be capable of projecting an image as big as 100" in diagonal, hopefully without too much degradation in quality. Obviously, the LumiTab will be mainly geared towards the professional crowd out there, but also towards the adventurous geeks who'd like to experiment and play with the portable projector technology.

Besides the projector, the LumiTab will be just a standard mid-range 7" tablet with a lowly resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. The good news is that it'll come straight with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. However, exactly when the Promate LumiTab is going to come will have to remain a mystery for now.

Meanwhile, if you're interested in learning more about the Samsung Galaxy Beam, feel free to check our review out!

When I saw the title before reading the article, I thought the LumiTab is Nokia's new tablet! xD

Nokia's tablet will be coming soon so we have to be patient, and this tablet is not bad at all, it has OK specs, Android 4.2, and an in-built projector.

Promate did a good job!

English obviously isn't your first language is it. You haven't even grasped our language yet and you think that puts you in a position to teach it to others?

Considering he's right, I would say he has a pretty good reason to post what he did. You, on the other hand, are very ignorant.

Really this will create no buzz. Who needs a projector. What for?
