Samsung W7900 projector phone at MWC ’09
The next evolutionary step in cell phones will probably be the inclusion of projectors in them, after all, you can only bump up the megapixel count in a camera phone by so much. They can’t really place in the relevant sensors and lenses that will me a camera phone function on par with a regular dedicated digital camera unless the technology is miniaturized to such a degree, but at least there is another path to take – by throwing in a digital projctor. The latest collaboration between Samsung Electronics and Texas Instruments has led to one of the more impressive projector phones in the market to date – the Samsung I7410 (for those in the European market), also known as the W7900 for folks living in Korea. The W7900 is equipped with the Texas Instruments DLP Pico Chipset that helps provide a providing “big picture” viewing experience when you’re on-the-go.
The Samsung W7900 is able to throw content with a wide range of image sizes that are way larger than standard phone displays, and you can even pass the 50″ mark assuming ambient light conditions are optimal for such a viewing. The lightweight and compact design is a boon, making this particular Samsung handset a complete mobile office and entertainment solution. Those who are interested will be able to pick up the Samsung W7900 in Korea sometime this month, while folks living in selected European markets will also be able to get their mitts on them in the same month. Pricing details have yet to be announced, and we’re not sure whether they will come subsidized with a carrier or retail at a higher price, unlocked.

- DLP Pico chipset technology
- 5 megapixel camera
- High-resolution color OLED touchscreen
- Intuitive flick navigation to view presentations and photo slideshows
