Last week at CES, Samsung Electronics and Texas Instruments unveiled the W9600 Samsung Projector Phone, a mobile phone with an embedded DLP Pico WVGA Chipset that reportedly projects DVD-quality images. According to the companies, the pico projection feature allows users to share pictures, watch videos, play games, view e-mail attachments, and give presentations. Content can be projected whether it's stored on the phone or streamed from the source. According to officials, the lightweight, compact Samsung Projector Phone can display images as large as 60 inches, depending on ambient light conditions.

"Building upon the excitement and success of our W7900 projection phone in Korea last year, this new phone transforms the mobile phone experience, giving users the capability to share large, stunning native DVD images from the palm of their hands," said David Noh, vice president at Samsung Electronics, in a statement.

"The phone's 'big picture' capability not only enhances the individual use experience, but also gives the user the capability to share experiences in a compelling way–opening the opportunity for numerous entertainment and business applications," added Frank Moizio, DLP emerging markets business manager, in a statement.

The Samsung Projector Phone features such applications as Web surfing, viewing JPEG photos, viewing video content in a variety of formats, giving PowerPoint presentations, and acting as a flashlight. The DLP Pico WVGA projects images with more than 400,000 pixels and claims a contrast ratio of more than 2,000:1. Other phone features include a 5.0-megapixel camera, a high-resolution color AMOLED touch screen, and flick navigation for viewing slide shows.
