Samsung Galaxy Beam Review

Announced at MWC 2012, the Samsung Galaxy Beam sports a projector module of Samsung's own make, that shines with 15 lumen and nHD (640x360) resolution, supposedly enough to create a watchable experience in a low ambient light setting, which can be blown up to 50”. Compare that to the 6 lumen that the pico projector inside its predecessor was capable of, and you will understand why we are excited to take the Galaxy Beam for a spin...

Samsung's really been innovative lately. I'm hoping to see the resolution get better in a year, a projector to cover a whiteboard at least for school. but anyhow, it's a good one.

Giving a spare 2000mAh battery is a good idea...

What a stupid review, PA! The only interesting thing about this phone is the projector. The review should have been filled up to 50% with performance data of it. Very unprofessional. The neighbour's kid would have done a better review if asked.
