BenQ has announced the launch of a pocket projector with integrated USB reader - the BenQ GP1. Although weighing only 1.4lbs., the GP1 offers high-end features: 120% NTSC, 100AL, integrated speaker, and 20,000+-hour lamp life. The GP1's integrated USB reader enables users to run movies, pictures, and office applications directly from a USB thumb drive without the need for notebook attachment.

Its palm-sized design makes the GP1 useful in pairing with other pocket devices such as iPods, Smartphones, PDAs, and digital cameras to bring a greater dimension of enjoyment to these everyday devices that would otherwise only display content on their tiny screens. Connectivity includes D-Sub, Composite, and USB inputs, and PC audio output. A detachable iPod docking station is available as an option.

The 10-80" image via a 1.92 throw ratio is adjustable with digital zoom and preset picture PC and A/V modes, which include four customizable user modes.

The GP1 is priced at $499.
