Projectors in Nokia phones? No? SCT optronics can do it!

| April 20, 2009 | Reply

Here’s a GSM handset measuring in at 122.4 x 59.2 x 21.1mm, weighing 190g and costing $250. What’s so special about it? It has a built in projector!

So, phones are getting larger and larger screens, making it more plausible to actually watch films or other lengthy videos. But what if we wanted others to watch it too? Since the maximum acceptable on a handset is about 4 inches (it would be to big otherwise, unless we get folding screen technology), we’re limited to one user watching one handset. Here’s where the Litphone comes in – it has it’s own built in projector – great to share those movies you may have stored on your phone. Granted, this is a bit of a gimmick, and a better solution at the moment maybe dedicated microprojectors, but remember when cameraphones were also gimmicks?

[Same applications as the microprojector except that you don’t need to attach it anything to get input, i.e. no wires coming out of handbags – just point your projection]

I remember dreadfully wanting to get the 7650,  as it was one the very first few phones to have inbuilt cameras. “It’s a waste of money; it’s just a gimmick – it will not catch on”, I was told. Now, cameras are almost as essential a phone feature as being able to make a phone call.  For a lot of people now, their camera phone maybe their first or even only camera.

Combined with the huge stock of memory we can expect to see in future phones, having a projector would make that handset much more useful as a portable media player. We’ll just need the additional battery packs and projector screen kits to make it worth while! :p
