Samsung Galaxy Beam Launched In UK
If you’re one of the select few wanting a built-in pico projector with your smartphone then Samsung has you covered. Last we heard about this little projector smartphone it was headed for the UK in July, and now it’s finally available for pre-order for all 10 of you interested.
After initially missing the April launch date, it is now currently available in Europe and Singapore for pre-order and will be officially available tomorrow. In case you forgot, Samsung released a Galaxy Beam once before that is stuck on Android 2.1 and is quite old, so for those who enjoyed it this will be a decent upgrade.
We got our first hands-on with this phone back at MWC this year, and hopefully will get more time with it soon. The phone rocks a 15-lumen projector and bulb that shoots a 640×480 image up to 50 inches diagonally. It should last for well over 20,000 hours so you can expect years of usage from the pico up top. The rest of the specs are quite generic and you’ll get a 4.0-inch AMOLED screen, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 5 megapixel camera and a decent little phone. I keep imagining streaming Netflix on my ceiling while in bed, or watching YouTube videos and I’m sold. You can buy it outright for $541 from Exansys too.
