Today, MicroVision announced that it will begin shipping its award-winning ShowWX+™ laser pico projector to Japan starting this quarter.  This laser-based pico projector offers 15 lumen brightness at WVGA (848x480) resolution and connects to a wide range of devices.  In addition, the ShowWX+™ is an Apple Certified device.  The device will be distributed by SYNNEX K.K. of Japan.  Pricing has yet to be announced.  Akira Nakamura, SYNNEX Director of Consumer Electronics, stated:

 

 

 

“While other pico projectors are currently available in Japan, the overall quality of the experience hasn’t lived up to customer expectations.  In contrast, the image quality of SHOWWX+ has impressed everyone we’ve shown it to, and we believe mobile device users will be really excited about the opportunity to share content anywhere.”

 

Picopros was the first to review the MicroVision ShowWX+™.  We have published several articles about this unique device.  In addition to a full review, we have done head-to-head comparisons to a couple competing products as well.  You can access all of these HERE.

 

For MicroVision, access to the japanese market is a big step.   It will be interesting to see how this development impacts sales of the ShowWX+™.
