Mobile giants Nokia and Apple are planning to launch pico projector phones before 2010

Online reports indicate that Apple and Nokia are each planning to release mobile phones with in-built projectors, with some possibly shipping as early as this year.

The report surfaced over at and are cited as “sources with Taiwan handset makers”. It claims that a subsidiary (Foxlink) of Apple's iPhone manufacturing partner (Foxconn) is busily working on developing its own in-house, in-phone micro projector that could project images of up to 50 to 60-inches.

Samsung already formally announced its first projector phone, the i7410, back at CES in January and this recent news suggests that Nokia will be looking to capitalise upon any development Foxlink makes in this area due to its “strong business relationships” with the Finnish giant.

According to the statement, “Foxlink has sent related samples to the client for verification, which may pave the way for small shipments in the fourth quarter of 2009” we could well see what the big mobile houses have in-store (pardon the pun) for us on the happy side of Christmas; we're not going to hold our breath though.

We've got to admit it; we're quite excited to see what Apple and Nokia will come up with to take on the Samsung i7410 pico projector.
