Cell Phone? Camera? Media Player? Picoprojector? No - It’s a Handheld Device.

Cell phones with cameras: this isn’t news. Cell phone with camera and media player: this isn’t news. Cell phone with camera, media player and integrated picoprojector. This was news earlier in the year when Samsung and Logic Wireless showed systems at CES.

Today’s news along these lines is a camera with a picoprojector built into it, the Coolpix S1000pj announced by Nikon on August 4th. The camera is a good point-and-shoot Nikon digital camera with a 12.1 Mpixel sensor, 5x optical zoom lens and a 2.7" 230,000 dot LCD screen. The camera can take VGA resolution, 30 FPS movies. In addition, the camera has a built-in 10 lumen VGA LCoS projector. According to Nikon, the camera battery is good for an hour of projection.
The Nikon Coolpix S1000pj is introduced in September.If that camera/projector sells well, and Nikon has its supply chain in order, this camera alone could sell 50K units by Christmas.
