Acer launches Windows 10 phone with projector technology
Top projector manufacturer Acer has announced the launch of the first non-Lumia Windows 10 phone, the Liquid Jade Primo, featuring projection capabilities.

According to Acer, the Liquid Jade Primo has been designed to replace computers, laptops and tablets, offering all the features needed by users in a significantly smaller package.

Based on Windows 10 Continuum technology, the phone can sense when it is connected to a secondary display to allow for universal apps to display on the screen regardless of their developer.

This built-in capability to connect to other USB or wireless devices also allows the Liquid Jade Primo to be used as a touchpad, virtual keyboard, or even as a projector.

Acer has stated that the projection capabilities are some of the most impressive features of the new smartphone, allowing users to project presentation decks to a projector or large screen, while displaying a 'Presenter View on the phone's screen.

Not only can this technology enhance projection portability for business users, but allows users to carry their media from projection device to projection device without needed to transport a large projector.

The Liquid Jade Primo is also capable of connecting to a TV or monitor at hotels or other unfamiliar venues, to provide productivity-intensive applications by breaking the boundaries of portability. Users can even continue to use other apps on their phone while the media is played on another device.

Commenting on the smartphone's range of impressive features, an Acer spokesman said: "With a USB Type-C monitor, wireless display accessories or the Display Dock, the Liquid Jade Primo can provide a PC-like experience on an external display with Windows 10 universal apps."

The Liquid Jade Primo has been schedules for release across Europe from February, with prices starting at £418 or €569.
