First projector equipped Android to ship next week
The Samsung Galaxy Beam is about to launch next week. The handset will be available to StarHub subscribers in Singapore July 17th with other destinations in Asia and Europe getting the model later this year. Will this phone eventually be offered by a carrier in the States? It's possible, but so far there is no word about the phone "beaming down" to U.S. cellphone users. With a 3.7 inch AMOLED screen, Android 2.1 and an 8MP camera, the phone has many of the same specs that we have seen on higher end Android models. The TI Pico Projector allows you to project your pictures, the web, or streaming video. While the LG Expo recently offered support for a snap-on Pico Projector on it's AT&T branded unit, the Beam is the first smartphone to have its own pico projector built-in. No pricing for the phone has been revealed.

Who cares about a projector? Its just some extra little feature i can't imagine ever using.

You couldn't.... other people can... It's the same crap old people say about texting... "Its just some extra little feature i can't imagine ever using"... open your imagination and mind. This projector is awesome!

If its like an option that's fine, like the LG eXpo. But I wouldn't want it on my phone personally.

It's intended for the person that would use it.

exactly. nobody actually needs a cell phone. People lived without them. But to have a projector one would be cool.

I thought this phone had a SuperAMOLED display, not just regular AMOLED. Can you confirm this?

super amoled i know ... maybe they changed the screen due to the lack of materials in the fabrication process

So that means they will have a supply problem with this as well? After this (ongoing) Droid Incredible fiasco we all know Samsung drags their feet in making these screens...

I agree in some respects that a projector is not needed on a phone, but if you look at the popularity of pico projectors such as the 3m Mpro 150 and the Adapt 305, there is obviously a need for that specific technology. I think the product might be better once the projector is better and brighter, so the things you would want to watch eg: videos, picture slide shows could be seen easily. All the same views are held towards the Nikon projector camera:
