Smartphone storage capacity is on the rise, and people store more and more media on their mobile phones every day. It's no wonder that manufacturers are looking at new features they can add in to take advantage of this fact. A news report from Digitimes states that Foxlink is working on delivering mobile phone projectors for a client in Europe.

That's not the only good news. The same report states that a variety of mobile manufacturers, including Nokia, Apple, and Samsung, all plan to release handsets with built-in microprojectors by the end of this year. That's right; iPhones with micro-projectors are looking to be an immediate possibility. It's also possible that the Samsung's new 4G Android phone will end up packing a micro-projector.

Ubiquitous micro-projectors are the next step in smartphone development. They're the cool new technology that's going to define the next generation of advanced mobile devices. This is a very good sign for all of us. Smartphones with integral projectors mean we're only a short step away from seeing a sixth sense type device.

It's unlikely that Apple will be the first company to take advantage of the projector boom. It's more likely that Nokia or Samsung will be the first. Samsung's latest releases are clearly a sign that they want to be seen as an 'innovator' in the industry. Hopefully they'll try to establish that reputation by putting the first lines of projector-phones into production. It's probably more likely that Nokia will beat them to the punch, though.
