Texas Instruments is doin work. Check out this
Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) announced today the next generation of its popular OMAP™ family: the OMAP 5 mobile applications platform, which is positioned to transform how mobile devices, such as Smartphones, tablets and other mobile form factors are used, making them even more valuable in our daily lives. More information on the OMAP 5 platform can be found here: www.ti.com/wbu_omap5_pr_lp.
"Imagine carrying only one productivity tool while in the office, on the road or at home – a single mobile device which provides PC-like computing performance with mobile power levels. Imagine using the same device to conduct a stereoscopic 3D (S3D) video conference for work. Imagine being in a meeting and projecting a document from this device, which you can edit by simply touching the projected image on a surface. Imagine going home and switching the device to your personal operating system to drive a next-generation game on your HDTV using wireless display technology. These capabilities are only highlights of what the TI OMAP 5 platform uniquely delivers. To see more experiences enabled by the OMAP 5 platform, view a video here: www.ti.com/wbu_omap5_pr_v."

One thing I noticed...
The top of the line chip has 4 camera controllers. And TI is desperate for a market to replace rear-projection DLP since LCD ate their lunch.
Look for a reference design phone (maybe) or tablet (more likely) with a micro-DLP engine for projecting video and a camera for motion capture ala Kinect.
So the hardware in their chip isn't particularly novel, but expect them to push some interesting applications.
