Anker has been producing portable projectors since 2017, when it released the first Nebula Mars. Since then, it has made a sequel to the Mars, and a smaller Nebula Capsule the size of a soda can. While the hardware and build quality were excellent on all of them, the heavily-modified Android software always left a lot to be desired.
Anker's newest model, the Nebula Capsule II, is significant because it's the first portable projector to run full-blown Android TV. No more struggling with a remote to navigate Android apps intended for phones — you get a real TV interface with real TV apps. Read More
Anker has released a few Android-powered projectors over the past year — the Nebula Mars, Nebula Mars II, and Nebula Capsule. Even though the Capsule is only about six months old, Anker already has plans for a replacement. The Nebula Capsule II is brighter, has a higher-resolution projector, and runs the full Android TV operating system. Read More
When Android Police reviewed the Anker Nebula Capsule in April 2018, we said it was "almost certainly the best portable projector you can buy, but it commands a high price." That price just got a lot more reasonable, though, with a sale that brings the soda can-sized smart projector to $265 on Amazon — $85 off its original $350 price. Read More
Screens on phones have been getting larger and larger, but they're not really big enough to watch a movie with some friends. On the other hand, a widescreen TV or a home theater projector can get you a pretty great cinema experience, but you can say goodbye to any vestige of portability. A good compromise is something like a pico projector, which can typically project an image larger than all but the largest of TVs while still being small enough to throw in your bag. Read More
Last year, mobile accessory company Anker released its first portable projector, the Nebula Mars. It was roughly the size of a lunch box, with powerful JBL speakers, great video quality, and Android built-in. The hardware was great, but the ancient version of Android (4.4.4, to be precise), lack of Play Store support, and high price made the product hard to recommend.
Not long after, Anker announced a smaller version, called the Nebula Capsule. It's roughly the size of a soda can, and works as both a projector and a Bluetooth speaker. It's almost certainly the best portable projector you can buy, but it commands a high price. Read More
Anker released its first portable projector, the Nebula Mars, last year. It was a decent product, and the company launched a smaller version on Indiegogo last year, named the Nebula Capsule. Now you can grab the Capsule for $296, a savings of $53 from the original retail price. Read More
There have been more than a few attempts at making portable projectors tiny enough to fit in your pocket, with the InstaShare Moto Mod being one of the latest. Sony apparently wants to give it a shot, as it announced the MP-CD1 mobile projector earlier today. Read More
Anker released its first portable projector last year, under its new 'Nebula' brand. The Nebula Mars was a solid projector, but the outdated version of Android held it back. Anker released its smaller Nebula Capsule projector on Indiegogo a few months ago, where it quickly surpassed the funding goal of $50,000. Read More
You might recall that I reviewed Anker's first portable projector back in August. While it was sold under the company's 'Nebula' sub-brand, the Nebula Mars retained Anker's top-notch build quality and premium design. It certainly had a few problems, like the lack of a Google Play Store, but overall it was a good product.
A few weeks ago, AAXA Technologies contacted me, asking if I wanted to try out their P2-A portable projector. Like the Nebula Mars, it runs Android (a newer version, at that), but it's even smaller and less than half the price. I agreed, and not long after, the P2-A arrived at my front door. Read More
Anker's projector brand, Nebula, released the Nebula Mars earlier this year. If you read our review, you'll know it was a pretty solid portable projector, but the software experience left a bit to be desired. Today, Anker launched the Nebula Capsule on Indiegogo, a smaller projector with (what seems to be) much improved software. Read More
