Cell Phone With Integrated Projector To Go On Sale In Japan

Way back in October 2008, we reported about a cell phone that featured a built-in mini projector. The cell phone was showcased by Japan’s biggest mobile carrier, NTT Docomo, as a prototype. But today, the same carrier announced [JP] that such a spectacular handset will finally go on sale in Japan this Friday.

If you’re an avid MobileCrunch reader, you’ll remember we covered the Sharp SH-06C in November as part of Docomo’s winter line-up of new cell phones.

Since then, Sharp has changed the name (from SH-05C to SH-06) and finalized the spec sheet.

  • DLP projector featuring 9 lumens brightness and 640×360 resolution
