Texas Instruments has released a new mobile phone that has a digital light processing (DLP) projector built in.
The DLP pico-prototype is an extension of Texas Instruments' current efforts to shrink projectors down to pocket size. The prototype is under 10cm long but can display a widescreen TV image on a screen or wall.
"As the leader in home theatre and business projection, TI continues to develop new and innovative consumer products," said Frank J Moizio, worldwide strategic marketing and business development manager for TI DLP Front Projection.
"Over the next few years, we envision a large opportunity for the convergence of projection technology and mobile devices like cell phones."
The prototype is intended to show the possibilities of the technology but no retail product has as yet been announced.
