Laptop? Check. MP3 Player? Check. Portable speakers? Check. Pocket projector? Check. The amount of gear business travelers haul around is enough to weigh anyone down. However, that load will get a little lighter with the introduction of the 3M MPro150, the ultimate personal electronics device for the business professional. The latest tool in 3Mís award-winning MPro family of pico projectors, the 3M MPro150 boasts one of the most robust feature sets of any pocket projector currently on the market, combining several applications into one compact, efficient device optimized for the on-the-go businessperson. No more sifting through a small electronics store when checking in for flights, or needing to bring multiple totes to presentations.

Professional pocket projector features
Designed with professionals in mind, the 3M pocket projector includes 1 GB internal memory, a micro SD card slot and a USB input for transferring files from a laptop or netbook, eliminating the necessity of a pass-through device and allowing entire presentations to be pre-loaded onto the projector itself. The 3M MPro150 pocket projector supports Microsoft Office applications (Word, Power Point and Excel), as well as Adobe PDF, photos and video, allowing the user to project images up to 50-inches at 15 lumens brightness in either the boardroom or break room. En route to that important presentation, business professionals can relax with their favorite tunes, courtesy the 3M MPro150ís integrated MP3 player and headphone jack. And, when itís time to share with colleagues, a pair of integrated stereo speakers turn the MPro150 into a theater-on-the-go.
