I rephrase this question because it is specific to the next phone.

Someone suggested creating an Other Half projector, and while that would be OK for the current phone which does not have the hardware, it is not ideal because you want to swap TOH's for colouring, and normally third party TOH's that you also want to use will not have it.

While the projector may not be adapted for usual business use, it would be cool to watch the day's pictures when you go on vacation, for example. People may want to avoid carrying a separate pico projector for different reasons.

It would be good to know in what situations other people think it would be useful.

Would be great but I won't think it will be economical. As we also want the phone price to be cheap.

I think a projector is a luxury feature at the moment.

Not sure if I've heard anything more silly than an integrated projector. Cramming all mediocre technology odds and ends into a single device certainly does not give the impression of an overall quality device.

Probably some people said something similar about the first cameraphones.

I think the technology is not there yet. Jolla is not a high end feature phone and for the moment it is a high end feature.

I am not sure this is the right way to go with the next Jolla phone. Since Jolla probably wont make alot of different models and may in fact just focus on one I think putting in a projector which is kind of a niche thing then it would be a waste for so many users.

Having a projector TOH is way better since you wont be using it all the time and swapping it out when you intend to use it will infact serve the purpose and not be a waste for the majority of customers.

But then there should be a TOH that has both a keyboard and a projector, for example.

@pulsar, would you mind describing a use case where you'd use the projector and the keyboard simultaneously?

I did not mean they would be used simultaneously, but that it would be a drag to have to carry additional TOH

I agree, this is a perfect task for a TOH!
