    Apps, schmapps.

    How about using your phone as a projector?

    1GHz LG eXpo smartphone features snap on pico-projector

    I was surprised when I saw the commercial. I thought, naaaaw, it's just a joke.
    No joke. It's possible, it has been done and it's already available in North America.

    So..
    They are still and video cameras, TV substitutes, mp3 players, mini computers, projectors AND phones.

    Anybody want to predict what else they'll be able to do in future?

    beam me up Scotty!!!

    The iphone and ipod actually have a mini projector add on. It would be nice if it had audio inputs that could record mp3 to the device from an external source. And Flash media capable would be nice. Possibly one with a 4.5 inche display I hear its possible apple is coming out with a 7 inche tablet based on the iphone operating system could be annouced end of Jan.

    The iPhone can already do this. The problem is, Apple disabled it ON PURPOSE!! :mad:

    Along with:
    Bluetoothing anything from phone to phone.
    Tethering to your computer.
    Bluetoothing stereo to your earpiece.
    Transferring files to/from your computer.
    Downloading anything from the net onto your phone to put on your computer.

    I like it.
    Probably not far off either. They have fingerprint readers on some phones, biorhythms can't be far behind. Soup up the camera for x rays, enhance the microphone for something like ultrasound and you'd be damned close to a tricorder.

    Of course you'd have to buy a separate app for blood or urine analysis.

    When the warranty is up on mine, I plan to jailbreak it. Anyone know of a good jailbreak program?
