The rumor mill is grinding to a halt, which probably means that Nikon is done for this year. We still have to watch the first week of December, but as of today I am not aware of any scheduled press events. To keep you entertained, I have several guest posts and giveaways scheduled for the next few weeks.
Today Nikon released a new iPhone/iPad app called iP-PJ Transfer that will allow to project content from your iOS device to the Coolpix 1200pj camera (see full press release at the bottom of this post):
Using the iP-PJ Transfer app on an iPhone 4 or any other compatible Apple product will enable the projection of various content stored on the aforementioned via the COOLPIX S1200pj. Until now, content that could be projected using an iPhone 4, etc. and the COOLPIX S1200pj was limited to slideshows and the streaming of YouTube™ content but the iP-PJ enables projection of a variety of content such as the following:
2) Projection of websites being browsed within the iP-PJ Transfer. Search engines can be used for bookmarking websites.
3) Document files: Projection is enabled for document files such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as well as Adobe PDF.
While searching itunes, I came acros few other Nikon apps I did not see before:
