    There are quite a few projector phones - LG eXpo GW820 has an optional projector accessory that clips on the back.

    what type of video files? Technically you could use a DVD Player and a project to display video clips.

    Assisted Solution

    The Pico Projector (or any projector) coupled to the Ipad or Iphone via HDMI using a Apple Digital AV Adapter

    The adapter is only compatible with the Iphone 4

    This adapter lets you mirror the content so others can see what you see on your device

    Mirroring supported only by iPad 2. Video out supports up to 1080p for iPad 2 and up to 720p for iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod touch (4th generation). Movies play at up to 720p.

    A DVD player is also an alternative but stick to the newer Bluray models that support a multitude of file formats like divx (xvid) avi's  MKV for H264 encoded content. Samsung make a nice unit under $160 that has everything you would need. Store your content on a USB flash drive or a standard DVD

    Some older phillips DVD's support playing AVI's but your filenames ar limited to only 14 characters for DVD and only 8 characters or less for USB flash or USB harddrive

    Also be aware of bulb cost and bulb life for any projector it can be a BIG expense in the long run

    Accepted Solution

    think the cost to implement the some of the suggestions is about the price of renting a projector. would close the qn and reward points for suggestion

    may consider rent a projector because the cost may work out about the same.
