Tablet PC with no external ports - how to display on a projector?

I'm working on an app that runs on a Tablet PC. The tablet I have has no physical ports - only WiFi and Bluetooth.

"Could use Microsoft SharedView - I believe it's the successor to NetMeeting for Vista and up: http://connect.microsoft.com/site/sitehome.aspx?SiteID=94

or Windows Meeting Space: http://en.wikipediadotorg/wiki/Windows_Meeting_Space"

"I would connect a regular desktop machine or laptop to the projector, install a VNC server on the tablet and connect to this from the projector-machine.

This way you can use the tablet as normal, and have it displayed on the projector via VNC.

If you can set the screen resolution on the projector-machine to the same as the tablet, simply fullscreen the VNC viewer application and it will micmic the tablet display exactly. If you cannot do this, most VNC viewer applications can scale the image to fit the screen.

RDP will not work for this by default, as it only allows one RDP session at a time (so you can either use your account locally, or via RDP) - Concurrent Remote Desktop Sessions in Windows XP SP2 explains how to get around this, but you would be just as well using VNC (TightVNC for example)"
