The time has come when you just don"t need anything else other than your mobile phone for everything. Now you can listen to music, take pictures, record video, play games, surf the net and of course the least important thing every buyer cares in a mobile phone today, you can talk and message with your friends and relatives.
Well now there is even more you can do with your mobile. You can actually use it as a projector to view all your slideshows, documents and even movies on a wide display in your wall or on a projection screen. Who needs theatres any more when you get such features in your mobile? This gadget is just transforming our lives beyond our imagination.
Today we deal with two projector phones that are available in India. The projector phone models are The Spice M9000 PopKorn and the Intex V Show Mini Theatre IN 8809. Spice was the first to launch the projector phone in India and Intex followed it with two models of which IN 8809 is the latest one and considered to be the best.
The Spice PopKorn costs around Rs 6000 and packs in a three megapixel camera, Dual SIM standby option and allows video playback and video recording. A wide variety of video formats including MP4, 3GP, AVI, FLV, RM & RMVB are supported. It has the latest version of Bluetooth and comes with GPRS support and wireless radio too.
The Intex V show pegged at around Rs 5800 doesn"t lag behind Spice PopKorn model on the specs either. It also offers similar features but with some short comings like two megapixel camera and video playback options that support only MP4 content. Wireless radio option is also missing in this projector phone.
Spice and Intex models support viewing files in formats like doc, pdf and adobe reader. However in Spice, there is a laser pointer which will be quite useful while you make presentations.
The Spice PopKorn has the capability to act as an analogue TV also, thus extending its utility. However the Intex Offering has a slightly larger projector display size when compared to the Spice PopKorn. Viewing movies will be quite enjoyable with a larger display size.
Both the phones come with built in Java environment and you can download and install all sorts of java apps and games into either of these phones. The battery backup also remains the same as both offers around 4 hours of continuous talk time. In terms of memory back up, they provide up to 16 GB of extendable memory support with a Micro SD slot.
So a final verdict after their comparison would be very tough because both offer just about the same features at almost the same price. The Spice may just tip the Intex phone when we take a closer look at the specs just because of the range of video formats available and also the availability of more business presentation tools like laser pointer.
