DLP integrated to mobile (Samsung Beam) about to be in market and videos and specs are pretty impressive. 3 hours of video playback on projector is feels awesome. http://asia.cnet.com/product/samsung-galaxy-beam-45877534.htm wishlist: mobile with this full HD projector integrated.

Very nice. There are a lot of potential uses for this whether on the road, at home, or in the office. Certainly the business traveler will probably benefit most first, but in the longer term we should see the benefits for all of us.

With a solid tripod to hold the phone, this could provide a wonderful tool for a business traveler on the road to access full digital content from the office - and not just the highlights that fit on a cell phone screen. Even halving the projection distance to produce a 25 inch diagonal screen (a respectable computer screen) would have 4 times the brightness of the cited 50 inch display.

Small and battery powered is where these kind of parts are used. Because the mirror array is small the rest of the optics is also small. Inexpensive LEDs can be used as the light source. There are a number of cell phones using the previous generation parts. Likely lower price so toys and other low cost applications.

Way to go TI, keep up the great work to push the barriers of technology and spend R&D cash in development. Without these efforts we will never get to the point of R2D2 projecting Princess Leia in our far flung future!

For a dark room , 300 to 500 lumens is a good brighteness for a 50 inches diagonal size projection of a HD source. Pretty good design improvemnet by Texas in a smaller real estate.

How many Lumens do we need for business and home applications? I see 2,000 for several home products currently.

That is pretty amazing for a device this small to generate 500 lumen of brightness. It is, however, still too dim for home entertainment or business presentation. Is it targeting the mobile devices? What about privacy? Also, handheld projector will be shaky, does this thing has an image stabilizer? Anyway, PI has really pushed their DLP technology to the extreme!
