Samsung Puts A Projector In Our Pockets
It wouldn’t be MWC without Samsung launching a new Android gadget.
And the Korean mobility giant did just that, introducing this week the new Samsung Galaxy Beam half-smartphone-half-projector device, running Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. The 4-inch Beam houses a 15-lumen LED projector that allows users to project (or "beam") videos, images, and text onto any flat surface, up to 50-inches in size.
Despite packing a lot of projector punch, the device weighs in at only five ounces (about the same as an iPhone 4), and Samsung said it’s as slim and portable as any smartphone on the market.
Specs include a 1-GHz dual-core processor, 8 GB of internal memory, and a 5-megapixel camera, but Samsung hasn’t released pricing or availability for the new device just yet.
