iGo Pitch Duo projects your PDA

The Pitch Duo is essentially a signal converter - it takes input from a handheld device and outputs a VGA compatible signal for a monitor or video projector. Connectivity options include hardwire, Bluetooth, and a standalone mode for accessing PowerPoint files without the handheld. The ultimate goal is to allow the traveling salesman to leave the laptop at home to make presentations directly from a PDA.

The Pitch Duo contains a Pentium class processor to provide the graphical muscle needed for slide transitions, but if you're looking for the full razzle-dazzle presentation experience then you'll have to keep lugging around a laptop. According to the user manual: "The Pitch Duo PowerPoint solution does NOT support animation features, embedded audio, embedded MPEG, live motion video, or bullet-building." Though the processor has the necessary power to throw an image on a screen it does not have enough juice to display video. Disappointing, but this device is only made for those that have to travel ultra light. If you're a hardcore road warrior who would benefit from carrying one less device there's an older review over at Pocket Now.
