Nikon Coolpix compact camera with built-in projector: confirmed

After my post yesterday I received multiple tips and some blurry images of a Nikon point and shoot camera with a built-in projector. This time I will not post the pictures (don't ask me why), but I can assure you that I can clearly see a "projector" button on the camera and an extra opening/lens on the front for the actual projector. The pictures do not appear to be photoshopped. The camera looks really small and I still wonder how they were able to include a projector in it (probably using LED technology) - this is why I did not believe the initial tip. The projector probably will be usable only for short distances. For comparison, here are some images of a portable projector for the iPhone released just few days ago (640x480 resolution, recommend distance 40 inches, 10 lumens):

Who cares about another Nikon p&s? Probably nobody here, but this rumor tells us that Nikon "still got it" and even as a big/old/traditional company, they can still innovate and implement "world's first" ideas. I hope there will be similar surprises in the DSLR and lenses area this year. The bad news is that one of the two scheduled Nikon press-conferences will probably be for point and shoot camera(s).

Nikon compact camera with built-in projector NR probability rating: 95% (95% because even after I've seen the pictures, I still cannot believe they can fit a projector in a p&s camera).
