I can see people would start projecting onto the windshield while 'driving', and you would see them constantly tapping on the windows. :D

Eh, it seems a little over-the-top to me. While cool, is it really that practical to have a projector and infrared keyboard in a phone? How useful is the pointing device really going to be, except maybe for when it's in projector mode? If I'm holding the phone, I'd rather use a touchscreen or stylus.

I love Mozilla, but I for one think they got it all wrong. Smartphones are used on the go, on the sofa, maybe in bed, rarely on a desk. Once you're near a desk, you most likely have a computer there. So, I see very little value in the projected keyboard. Moreover, if I were in a position where I actually needed a full keyboard connected to my phone, I think I would really prefer an ordinary docking station with a real keyboard attached. It is just so much more convenient to work with.

Also, I don't care much for the shape of this phone. It may be nice to grip, but seems really bad in the pocket I think.

The video projector is cool for watching movies and stuff though.

This is a true innovation of the smartphone and shows the capabilties of our technology.

This would most likely be immeasurably useful in Business situations and even for social gatherings.

Looks like a iPhone killer to me, I'm thinking we'll hear in a few weeks of nokia etc partnering up with google to make this a reality. don't you think?

What would the OS be? SeabirdOS MozillaOS or just a modified linux smartphone version?

I don't want it. I NEED IT.

Next day: Apple or some other cell phone company license the idea and sues Mozilla for copyright infringement.
