Samsung Galaxy Beam Smartphone: The Crown Jewel is the Pico Projector Inside

Laura Clinton, February 1, 2013

My purse needs a size upgrade. Soon, I'll have to throw a Hefty sack over my shoulder to accommodate the four different electronic devices that swim around in a sea of receipts and empty hand sanitizer bottles. But wait, pico projector technology has finally made its way into the smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Beam offers me the chance to spare myself from schlepping a portable pico projector and replace it with a crucial bottle of aspirin.

Familiar with many pico projectors, I was pleasantly shocked to see that the size of this phone/projector hybrid was not much larger than my iPhone 4s. The dimensions of the Beam are 4.88 inches by 2.53 inches by .49 inches and weighs 5.13 ounces.(The iPhone 4s is 4.87 by 2.31 inches by .3 inches and weighs 3.95 ounces.) Since I use an iPhone, I ran into issues with the Beam's layout. It reminded me of a compressed laptop. However, after two days of trial and error, I mastered enough of the Android Gingerbread operating system and its apps to function as a user. I quickly discovered that the crown jewel of this smartphone is the DLP pico projector hidden inside of it.
