Although this Android tablet from Hammacher Schlemmer is a bit underwhelming as far as Android tablets go, it does have one feature that may make you want to take a second look. It has a built-in projector capable of projecting an 8.5 foot 480p resolution image on a wall up to 10 feet away.
The 8 inch tablet features a 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, a 1.8 GHz Quad core processor, 5 MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 2 GB of RAM, dual HD stereo speakers, and more. Too bad it only comes with Android 5.1 which is 2 major versions behind Android 7.0 which is the latest. It’s also extremely questionable if this tablet would ever be updated to a newer version.
The biggest issue (other than price) with this tablet is that it only comes with Android 5.1 which is 2 major versions behind Android 7.0 which is the latest. It’s extremely doubtful that this tablet could ever be updated to a newer version.
If you need a small Android tablet with a built-in projector and don’t mind paying $399.95 for it, head over to Hammacher Schlemmer for all the details.

I have the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro which has a built-in projector as well. 10.1″, 4GB RAM, 64GB SSD, Intel Atom X5, Android OS 6.0. Only down side (which is considered major for a “media” device) would be that it doesn’t support exfat for the microSD card. Only fat32 is supported and that means you can’t load in any file larger than 4GB which is rare these days with HD video files which you’ll be using because of the projector.
I’d probably rather buy a Moto Z and the projector mod. At least with that, there’s a better chance of future OS updates.
Buying a multifunction device is the surest way to get more than one thing done poorly.
Jack of all trades, master of none 🙂
