Samsung Galaxy Beam Brings First Android-Based Pico Projector Phone to Singapore

Samsung has announced that their Galaxy Beam (formerly “Halo”) handset is headed for Singapore next month. What makes this phone so special is it that it is the first Android handset to feature a built-in DLP pico projector. Running Android 2.1, the Beam also boasts a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display, an 8 megapixel autofocus camera with flash, and a front-facing VGA camera. Rounding out the phone are support for 7.2Mbps HSPA data, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n WiFi, A-GPS, and FM Radio. There’s no mention of price yet but we don’t expect this to have mass-market appeal. Start saving now.
