Pocket Projectors on Cell Phones: Pogue's Post in the New York Times & Some Related Videos

Pogue's Post:  Clear Trend in Pocket Projectors
NYT, 2/24/2010

David Pogue, a technology writer for the New York Times, recently wrote a detailed, entertaining post about pocket projectors, also known as pico projectors.   According to Pogue, the LG Expo cell phone comes with an (almost) built-in projector.  The Aaxa, another pico, uses lasers to generate high-resolution images, comes with speakers, and allows for projecting from a range of sources, including DVD players, TiVo, camcorders, laptops, computers, and soon, iPods & iPhones.

According to Pogue, "pico projectors have a very bright, high-resolution future".
