Assuming the projector is part of the phone, it might be tough to play games without moving the phone and, thus, the projected image... Angry Birds might be playable, but other games that use the accelerometer or gyroscope would be problematic. :-)

this phone is more business oriented, than it is for games...

midrange phone for folks at the office that don't care about games, but want to show off its presentation skills

Right, I was just referring to the article's mentioning "Imagine the games you could play..." etc. :-) More disappointing is that it's only running Gingerbread. Then again, after seeing the release date (February), it's not that surprising.

I know a couple of people that could be interested...

But personally I pass on it, I need to have video out over HDMI (or mhl)

Playing Dead Trigger or N.O.V.A. 3 on my SGS3 in a 47" TV is awesome (difficult but awesome!)

And a little tip that helps in this regard, using the "show touches" from the developer's settings, enable dots that shows on TV so you can see where your fingers are without looking at the phone... or you can use a Controller :-)
