According to a statement on TI's Web site, the phones -- model I7410 for the European market and model W7900 for the Korean market -- can project images in excess of 50 inches to view
Powerpoint slides, email attachments, pictures and videos."Working together, Samsung and Texas Instruments, DLP(R) products have made headway in a currently untapped market," said Wonsik Lee, Vice President of R&D Planning Team at Samsung Electronics, in a news release. "This is an exciting time for the mobile phone industry as we transform the limitations of the mobile phone viewing experience to compelling image sizes that really adds significant value to both business and consumer users."
According to TI, the new smartphones, which will compete in a market of heavy-hitters including
Research In Motion
with its sundry BlackBerrys,
-- will be available in Korea beginning this month. In addition to TI's DLP Pico chipset, the phones will have a 5-megapixel camera, a touch screen and built-in speakers.
