holy... the built in projector costs 179 extra? That thing makes the phone look hideous and costs as much as a regular projector. how many lumens? there are handheld projectors out there in the same price range that put out 12 lumens. Interested to see if it compares. They reviewed it on testfreaks and it didn't did decently.
