According to the folks at Engadget, MicroVision is turning their attention to Android by showing off a prototype mini tablet at CES that includes a built-in projector. Although it looks more like a phone than a tablet, the device boasts some impressive specs.

  • ARM 11 Processor
  • Android 2.2
  • HDMI in and out
  • 3.5-inch capacitive touch display
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • 3-axis accelerometer

In addition to being able to project images for presentations, MicroVision says that the device could be perfect for gaming applications.
