Samsung Galaxy Beam Review

Today we have the one and only Samsung Galaxy Beam smartphone to show everyone. This isn't actually the one and only, as Samsung's released a phone with the same name in 2010. This is a new and improved Galaxy Beam -- just don't look into the light. What we have here is a decently powerful mid-range smartphone, complete with a 15 lumen bright Texas Instruments DLP (Digital Light Processing) pico projector. If you want to stream movies to the wall in your room -- this phones for you. Head on down for our full review.

Samsung Galaxy Beam official with integrated Pico projector

The Galaxy Beam isn't Samsung's first pico projector-phone combination, but it's the first running Android, so it's on our radar. The Gingerbread phone packs a 15-lumen lamp capable of displaying up to a 50-inch image into a body that's not too much larger than a standard phone, though the other specifications aren't anything to write home about. The Samsung Galaxy Beam was announced via press release prior to Mobile World Congress, which doesn't officially begin until Monday.

LightPad: a pico projector for Android with big ideas

As neat an idea as they seemed, Motorola's various Lapdocks haven't amounted to much. The principle's is sound, but if you're going to carry around an accessory that's as big as a laptop, as heavy as a laptop, and almost as expensive as a laptop, why not just carry a real freaking laptop? Startup company QP Optoelectronics intends to change the equation, by giving you an 11" screen, full keyboard AND up to a 60" projector, all in a package about the size of a few magazines.They're calling their flagship product the LightPad.
