MWC: Galaxy Beam Hands-ON.
Business is business and if we have something to with it is probably what Samsung maybe thought by their own.
The Galaxy Beam is in fact the ultimate Business device with build-in pico projector!
This is quite useful to give presentations or images to display at meeting or such things.
We of SamMobile found a Samsung Employee that was kind enough to show us what the Galaxy Beam’re really could do …
The Galaxy Beam runs on Android 2.3.6 and will be updated Android 4.0 later.
The main feature of this device is the build in projector.
This pico projector can project anything that is on the screen up to 50 inches and the images are razor sharp. It must be noted that it has to do with the light conditions wich you are in.
But what can we do with the projector?
Basically everything what your phone does, but mainly the projector is made for giving presentations and like watching movies or pictures.
On a fully charged battery the projector can last about 4 hours.
This means that the battery is good enough for watching a whole movie wich is projected onto a wall.
For the rest, the Galaxy Beam has sufficient storage with 8 GB of internal and external up to 32 GB through microSD.
Also, the Galaxy Beam is not one of biggest phones around… It is in fact only 12.5mm thick, according to Samsung it is the thinnest projector unit that is currently on the market.
However, the device runs on Samsung’s own TouchWiz skin.
Our expectation is that this device will do great for bussines people or students, because they heave to give a lot of presentations.
Imagine yourself in the train editting your presentation wich you just made at home, and then arriving in the classroom and projecting it right on the spot on the wall. How awesome is that ?
The expected selling price and release date is not yet available.
We expect this unit itself around April / May.
Below you will find a demo video of a Samsung employee who shows us the device and additionally some hands-on photo’s.
