Though I do wonder about the design, you see projectors like the NEC LT150,HT410,HT510 have limited contrast as they employ some kind of prism array to get the projector the shape that it is. Or something along those lines (can't recall). To make a projector flat would require some re-arrangement and that may impact on overall image quality. If the projector is priced the way it is, with the features it touts and with the contrast being reasonable once calibrated, then we have something.
We still don't know what colour wheel it employs (LG's other PJ with similar brightness figures was employing a RGBWY wheel).
Also the resolution brings up a separate question, if it is really 1280x768, then it won't be exactly 16:9 anymore (I assume that the mirrors in DLP chips are always square given they tilt on their diagonal axis) and this begs the question of what happens with our screens that have dimensions of exactly 16:9. Of course the article may have got it wrong and it is a 1280x720 chip (can someone look it up, I've no idea where to look :P except to say that on the TI website you can search for PJs based on reso and there is no entry for 1280x768 reso).
