MWC 2012: Samsung unveils the Galaxy Beam, a smart phone that projects

*MWC 2012: Samsung unveils the Galaxy Beam, a smart phone that projects*

At the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona on Sunday, Samsung announced a new smart phone, the Galaxy Beam, with an unusual feature that puts a new twist on sharing: The Beam's built-in projector saves you from squinting at a small screen by letting you display images, video, games, and other digital content on flat surfaces such as walls and tabletops.

The 15-lumens projector beams 640-by-360-resolution images (up to 50 inches wide) out of the top of the phone. The phone itself is fairly slim, at 12.5 mm, about half an inch; has 8GB of internal memory; and runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

Samsung did release a projector phone in 2009, as did LG and Logic Wireless; but these were much bulkier and less powerful. Time will tell whether the world—and more specifically, the U.S. market—is ready for this concept in a neater, lighter package. No word yet on availability or pricing.
