Laptop? Check. MP3 Player? Check. Portable speakers? Check. Pocket projector? Check. The amount of gear business travellers haul around is enough to weigh anyone down. Today, however, that load will get a little lighter with the introduction of the 3M ™ Pocket Projector MPro150, the ultimate personal electronics device for the consummate business professional. The latest tool in 3M's award-winning MPro family of pico projectors, the 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.

Designed with professionals in mind, the MPro150 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 MPro150 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 the break room.

En route to that important presentation, business professionals can relax with their favourite tunes, courtesy of the MPro150's integrated MP3 player and headphone jack. And, when it's time to share with colleagues, a pair of integrated stereo speakers turns the MPro150 into a theatre-on-the-go. 

Additional features include an integrated flip stand, tripod and a variety of input cables, which make the MPro150 ready to use "out-of-the-box" with a wide range of today's most popular video output gadgets. Available optional accessories include an adapter cable for Apple® products, component video cable and car charger.

"Perfect for the business professional, the 3M™ Pocket Projector MPro150 is akin to having an entire suite of presentation tools right in your pocket," said Richard Chartrand, General Manager, 3M Display and Graphics Business. "There's no need to pack a separate laptop or projector, thus lightening the load for business professionals on-the-go".

The lightweight MPro150 is just over 5 inches long and weighs a mere 5.6 ounces. It is available now at www.shop3mcanada.ca for $450. For those who are looking for a casual consumer electronics accessory for watching movies, sharing photos or projecting video games up to 50 inches 3M also offers the MPro120 projector, which has a suggested retail price of $395. Optional accessories for both the MPro150 and MPro120 are sold separately. For more information on the 3M™ Pocket Projector MPro 150 and the entire MPro family, visit http://www.3m.ca/mpro
