LG has set a release window for its upcoming Bluetooth MiniBeam Projector. The PW700 is designed to be a compact and portable multimedia solution.

"Whether you're watching a streaming movie indoors or a music video on your smartphone outdoors, the LG Bluetooth MiniBeam offers a truly versatile viewing experience."
Measuring just 172mm x 117mm and weighing in at 580g, the MiniBeam Projector is geared toward offering a convenient mobile entertainment option. The device features a resolution of 1280x800, 700 ANSI-Lumens of brightness, and a 100,000:1 contrast ratio. The projector is capable of displaying images from 25-inches to 100-inches on any flat service. Likewise, Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity is included as well, letting customers stream sound to supported audio devices like headphones and home theater systems. In addition, the PW700 also features screen sharing options like WiDi, Miracast and HDMI.
Pricing has not been revealed yet, but the LG PW700 MiniBeam Projector will be available in Europe in September. It will then expand to Asia and the Middle East in October. A US release date has not been announced. The device will also be on display at IFA in Berlin from September 5-10.
