Oh, two things:

   * on ebay, I found a lot of things that I'll call "passive" projectors, 
which apparently consist of a cardboard box with a lens on the front (and 
maybe one or more mirrors)--designed to have a cellphone placed in the unit 
and then the image projected through the lens.  I would expect the image to be 
pretty dim.

   * here's a "non-passive" one that seems to have lots of inputs, can use 12 
VDC, etc.  (I've copied the specifications, below, and note that I picked this 
one randomly from ebay--it was one of the ones near the top of the search 

60'' Multimedia Projector Home Cinema Theater HDMI VGA TV USB For PC Cellphone


I guess the fact that the native resolution is 640x480 but it can support 
1920x1080 means that the image is "interpolated" (right word?) down to 
640x480.  I suspect most of them work this way, but there may be exceptions.
