its a good feature for business customers but seriously, the projected size needs to be bigger. its only good for 3 people to see in close range if you do presentations. As of now, it still needs improvement.

A projecting cellphone?
What did they put on it as the power source?
A micro-hydrogen cell?

very innovative... 5 stars for a mobile.
but my main concern is that... will de battery last ? ( it happen to all portable device. )
if de playback on de projector has 5 hours of play time...
that will create a history on mobile.
i believe that it will be a very handy mobile for business usage.

It'll be used by people who frequently attend meetings and need to display their presentations.

But to educate you, the built-in projector is useful for certain businesses where an impromptu presentation to clients might be needed (i.e., marketing/company profile presentation or maybe a quick Powerpoint presentation of facts/figures).

Please don't shoot down a product or technology just because you don't understand it or it doesn't fit into your infinitesimally small world...

hope that the projector will not affect the lcd of the phone due to its heat...

Oh my gosh, what was Samsung thinking? They can't even fix sunlight legibility on their display, now they come up with a projector? LOL. I wonder if it comes with a slide as well to project images to, lol. This is like "whatever".

How is this new? I have had a excellent projector phone since May 2008, it's called the Epoq EGP and looks like.. hmmm.. let's say if Nokia N73 and Iphone had a baby.. then it would look like the Epoq.. i got it from a friend who was in Hong Kong last year.. it's a excellent phone.. it has like all the specs as well.. I can't see how this Samsung phone is inovative?

Whats wrong with putting a projector in a phone?
Like putting the FM transmitter to a radio for audio.
Samsung just add some innovation by projecting the Video for visual.
If we can accept FM transmitter, then whats wrong with projector?
