Samsung Galaxy Beam for pre-order at Clove

Samsung Galaxy Beam for pre-order at CloveThe Samsung Galaxy Beam was one of several devices revealed by Sammo at Mobile World Congress last month.

It is, of course, the successor to the, er, Samsung Galaxy Beam, a 2010 handset that doubles as a projector, and you can pre-order the 2012 edition now from online retailer, Clove.

Samsung Galaxy Beam price and release date remain unconfirmed. Indeed, Clove itself admits to jumping the gun slightly, with a blog post explaining: “We do not at this stage have confirmed pricing or availability, but you might just want to ensure you are on the list so that when we do have them you get first refusal.”

However, Clove is willing to take a stab in the dark in terms of pricing, guessing that the Samsung Galaxy Beam will go for £454.80 (including VAT).

The new Samsung Galaxy Beam stretches the display from 3.7 to 4in (800 x 480), cranks the processing juice to 1GHz dual-core, and increases the battery from 1,800 to 2,000mAh.

Other Samsung Galaxy Beam specs include a 5MP/1.3MP camera combo, Android 2.3 (Gingerbead), and 8GB internal storage with microSD support.

The 15-lumens projector is the real star of the show, however, and the Samsung Galaxy Beam claims to be capable of displaying images of up to 50 inches on your wall. Nice.

6gb ram, blimey

Can't find the resolution that outputs at, and 15 lumens doesn't sound that much?

15 lumens is about as bright as a cave troll...

As for its output resolution, it's the same as the screen (480x800) AFAIK.

Found a site saying nHD which as far as I can see is 640x360, shuddering at thoughts of that on 50" screen.

Eugh...I thought it was the screen's native resolution, which would still be pretty awful on a 50" screen (unless you were about 4 miles away). nHD will look truly terrible.

Still, it'd be fun to use in a cinema :p ;)

This thing always reminds me of a pencil sharpener.

Or maybe a fleshlight for really tiny pencils.

Hey, it does look like something designed by Staedtler. You're right o_O
