The projector linked most certainly IS a projector. It is a SXRD based unit with the ability to deliver images without issue. Obviously, it will be limited to the size and I would certainly agree that this product needs to be closer to $300 instead of anything over $500 if it is something I would take seriously. At $300 it's the type of thing I could see throwing up in a couple of rooms in my home and be pretty excited about it.
This is much like their first OLED display. It's not a product which really works. It's not like people have tables which are really available for gaming on, and the apps are going to be seriously limited. It's a projector, so it will be slaughtered by ambient light, and it's not a bright projector, so even more so.
The 1366x768 resolution is... Well, it's appropriate for a $300 device.
It would need to be darn near silent to be something which could be left in a bedroom, and it would need to be designed into a home space with a fair amount of thought. I don't have a place in my home where this would even make sense.
But, that doesn't mean that it won't work for some people very well in certain spaces. For people with more money than I have for sure. But, they are out there, and a discussion of these forward thinking products isn't at all unreasonable to have.
100 lumen, 1366x768, SXRD projector with Android and multi-touch interface. About $1,600. Ouch!
