Samsung's First Projector Phone Sees Daylight At CES 2009

Do you remember those tiny DLP-based pico projectors presented at last year's CES? Well, this year Samsung have integrated one into a real working mobile phone. Imagine having a projector this size always with you.

For their first projector phone Samsung chose to go with Texas Instruments and their DLP-based pico projector module that was announced at last year's CES.

The recent projector phone by Samsung is actually a working device and it should be available in Korea this year under the Anycall brand meaning it's not a Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) mobile. It has an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display, 5 megapixel capturing camera and runs on the Samsung TouchWiz interface.

The model name of the Samsung projector phone is still a mystery since unlike what other websites are publishing, the SHOW sign on top of the device is not its name but a Korean wireless video service. The same sign can be found on most Anycall SPH handsets.

While image quality by pico projectors is not comparable to the one of their desktop counterparts (who expects that anyway!), the result is quite stunning and the gadacquire can be used for watching movies or browsing through the image gallery on the move.

The best thing about having the projector built correct into the phone (instead as a separate device) is that there is no need of external video source and it's always with you ready for use. Of course, you'd probably have to bring your charger along too, as this beam of light seems like a accurate battery eater.

Here's a quick live demo of the Samsung projector phone:

Along with the mysterious projector phone Samsung also introduced a PMP, dubbed as MBP200. The latter has an integrated DLP projector, too. It also packs a 2.2 inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display, DMega Bytes (MB) TV tuner and offers video and MP3 support.

Its projector (made by TI again) is able of projecting images with a 480 x 320 pixels resolution and a size of up to 50 inches. The Samsung MBP200 has up to 16 Giga Bytes (GB) memory on board (via an SD card slot) and sports a built-in speaker and a video input jack.
