Projector phones were supposed to be “the next big thing” in the evolution of cell phones. So far, that hasn’t been the case, there was a non-Android based projector phone released here in the
US recently. Needless to say it didn’t do so well as far as sales goes. I personally haven’t seen one in the wild since it was released. Can Samsung break this technology into the mainstream with the Galaxy Beam?
This phone has a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display, HD video recording, A-GPS, FM Radio and Bluetooth 3.0. It runs Android 2.1 and also has a 1,800mAH battery, 7.2Mbps HSPA data on 900/1900/2100MHz and quad-band GSM/EDGE. There’s no mention of a microSD slot but there is a confusing “4Gb + 2Gb + 1Gb + 16Gb MoviNAND” listed under memory.
This handset will launch first in Singapore this July. Like the Galaxy S, it could make its way around the world. It is expected to launch here sometime in the future, most likely on AT&T since it already has their 3G bands.[via engadget]
