Samsung introduces updated Galaxy Beam, projector phone of the future?

Sammy has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Beam. It’s the projector phone Samsung tweeted about, and it’s all about fun. It’s actually the updated version of the Galaxy Beam that was launched a few years ago, which was somewhat of a flop. However, the updated version seems much more powerful, so it might just hold some potential. The specs for the Galaxy Beam include:

  • 4-inch 480 x 800 WVGA display
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • Gingerbread
  • A multitude of HSPA bands
  • MPEG4, H.263, H.264, WMV, DivX
  • Recording/Playback: 720p @ 30fps
  • BlueTooth 3.0
  • 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz WiFi
  • MicroUSB, USB 2.0, 3.5mm headset jack
  • PC Applications
  • 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, MicroSD slot (up to 32GB)
  • 2000 mAh battery
  • 15 lumen can project 50” wide 720p HD quality picture.
Well, it’s certainly a device that could liven up a party. No word on a release date just yet, but we’re fairly sure we’ll hear more about it soon. So, who’s looking forward to picking one up? Sound off in the comments!

    Why does the inclusion of one cool feature necessitate the watering down of other key features?  If I’m business-savvy enough to need a projector at any given moment, I’m probably enough of a power user to need more than a dual-core 1 Ghz processor.  Bummer dude!
