The iPad 2 was released in early March and has since been widely received
as a monumental improvement to its predecessor. With its new HDMI output,
the iPad 2 can do a whole lot more than it once could and projector
connectivity couldn’t be simpler. Using the iPad’s keynote application, it

that can now be displayed to a much larger audience. So other than a
conventional HD projector, what can you connect your new iPad 2 to in order
to project decent images?

and knowing what pico projector to get is important!

pico projector, the one with the ‘+’. By far the most popular and slickest
looking projector, it’s fair to say that this is device is the market
What’s so great about it?
No bigger than an iPhone
So that means that you can project video from your Netflix app into a 100″
bright display from a device no bigger than your phone! The only downside
is the lack of audio, but if you have portable speakers or headphones then
