LG has taken the commitment of making mobile projectors hit the market in 2010. That leaves little time to wait until the small screen of handsets becomes a drawback for this device.
Mobile phones tend to "fusion" with other devices towards
packing evolved capabilities in the little space of their compact cases. This enables their users to take with them the most evolved technology
and a huge amount of possibilities in their pockets. Korea's LG Electronics President and Chief Technology Officer Hee-Gook Lee presented his views in a speech held at this year's International Meeting on Information Display (IMID 2007).
Mobile projectors have a great chance of solving the problem of the small screens that handsets come equipped with. These devices now manage to pack mobile TV performances, high capture quality and also store a large amount of personal information. It's a real shame that this large amount of content cannot be shared easier and better than through the small screen that mobile phones come equipped with.Mobile projector
technology has been available as a prototype for some time now, but now one of the leading handset producers has actually given a timeframe in which they will turn the concept into actual products. The possibilities that such a technology brings are quite impressive. Business people will find in their handsets a handy solution for making presentations without heavy equipment. Moreover, there is also an important use for this technology in the deployment of mobile TV in the future, now that the small display will no longer be an issue.
Aside from mobile projectors, LG also considers using flexible displays, for more robustness and freedom in the handsets' design. At this time, the visibility of such a screen resembles the paper color, which makes it best suitable for electronic books and low-end mobile phones. They come with the great advantage of a low manufacturing cost and resistance to impact.
