Samsung Galaxy Beam Available in India At Rs. 29,900

About 5 months after it was unveiled, the Samsung Galaxy Beam is now on sale at the Samsung India E-store at a price tag of Rs. 29,900. As was expected, the price is the same as the pre-order price that was quoted earlier in the month.

Despite not being that impressive in terms of specifications, the Galaxy Beam owes both its name and claim to fame to the one feature that sets it apart from other smartphones: The built-in DLP WVGA projector that is able to project images in HD to a size of up to 50 inches and with a brightness of 50 lumens.
Apart from the novelty of having an inbuilt projector, the Galaxy Beam will allow users to share content directly by projecting it onto any available surface. For business users it will mean that there is no need for a projector and presentations can be uploaded and projected directly from the smartphone.
Considering it is a fairly new device, it may come as a surprise that the Galaxy Beam runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, although it should be noted that an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is eventually planned. It has a 4 inch WVGA display, a 1 GHz dual core processor, 768 MB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory.
As far as cameras go, the Galaxy Beam sports a 5 Megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 Megapixel front camera.
In short, although the Galaxy Beam is a decent smartphone there should be no illusion that the Rs. 29,900 price tag is mainly due to the in-built projector and that is its main selling point. For now it is a one of a kind device that definitely has many practical applications for business users as well as regular consumers.
If the Galaxy Beam is successful, other smartphone manufacturers may even follow suit and include projectors in some of their models.
