At the Consumer Electronics Show in Los Vegas, Sharp Corp. is showing off a 108-inch high-definition LCD television screen. But another company, Microvision, thinks bite-sized is better: It's unveiling a video projector for installation in your cell phone or Blackberry.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

And let's stay at that show for our last word on business. There are big screen TVs and then there are big screen TVs. Sharp Corporation is showing off a 108-inch high definition LCD TV. That trumps the mere 100-inch model from LG Electronics.

Another company though thinks that bite-sized is better. A company called Microvision is unveiling a video projector for installation in your cell phone or Blackberry. It'll let you watch movies or photos. So you can watch those sweeping movie landscapes on a screen the size of a chocolate mint.

This is MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

And I'm Renee Montagne.
