Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smartphone

Is it possible to manufacture a Smartphone device with inbuilt mini
DVD / CD Drive  ?.

The DVD / CD Drive hardware electronics and the supporting software drivers to play data (audio,video etc media) stored in mini DVD / CD ROM Disks ?. The mini disks will have a smaller circular radius as compared to Standard DVD / CD ROM Disks.

Do you feel is it possible to built this hardware within a Smartphone
device ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Yes, it's possible from a technology point of view.  But who would want to do it?  The drive would take lots of battery power, the size of the phone would be large; and heavy and undesirable from a users viewpoint.

Everything is for downloading now days and playing movies on smartphones and tablets is the way the market is going - throughout the world.

I don't think much of this idea.  Sorry.
