Samsung Show W7900

Samsung this morning officially unveiled the first phone to have Texas Instruments' DLP Pico technology built-in. The Show W7900 for Korea (pictured) and its Euro-centric equivalent, the i7410 both take advantage of the small chipset and a compact projector to cast an image on a screen or wall which is much larger than the phone's LCD: images upwards of 50 inches diagonal are possible in suitably low light. Samsung envisions the feature as letting owners present slideshows directly from phones or for playing videos at a TV-like size.

Both versions of the phone have a full-length OLED touchscreen with flick gestures, a 5-megapixel camera and built-in speakers. The W7900 appears first and will ship later this month in its native Korea, while the i7410 is due "soon." It's not known whether Samsung is planning a North American version of the phone.

    Apple will have to suck Samsung's dck to get this into their overpriced "iphone"... iTunes future will be better off sucking samsungs anyways just for this reason.

    ^Meds?

    Woah dude, take it easy, get some water and take your prescription.

    As for the phone, this is a great idea for anyone who does presentations. No more wasting time and money on getting prints made for presenting large scale. Also, you won't have to worry about them having a large projector ready for you to hook your laptop up to. Just walk in, set your phone down, and introduce the idea. Add a Bluetooth remote for slide control, batta' boom, batta' bing, and you've got a quick, clean, and "green" presentation. 1 for Samsung on this idea.

    Awesome overhead

    I hate frustrated Macintosh wannabees who don't have the money to buy the good stuff and then turn against it...

    Get a life, buy a Mac and shut the f* up.

    The concept of being able to make a telephone conversation with an overhead projector is awesome! Way to go Samsung!
