Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, has announced the recent availability of the pioneering Galaxy Beam in Saudi Arabia. Joining Samsung's Android-powered Galaxy portfolio, the Galaxy Beam is a projector smartphone that lets people display and share multimedia content wherever they are and at any time.
Andrew Shin, HHP business manager, Samsung Electronics in the Kingdom, said: "We were delighted by the hugely positive response we have received as a result of this extraordinary and never-seen before device that has reached our region. It's the kind of device that won't be found anywhere else — a high definition projector within a standard sized smartphone — and is great for people who want to watch movies, show photos to friends or need to give a presentation while they're out and about."
The Galaxy Beam can be used to transform any room into a mini home-theater by projecting full screen video clips, maps, business information and games onto the wall or ceiling - all in high-definition and up to 50 inch wide. Holiday snaps can be captured and shared instantly using the Galaxy Beam, which also boasts a 5MP camera. It's also a great device for both students who can collectively share videos or work in any room or student lounge, and gamers who can download their own or choose from over 1,000 games available via Game Hub, Samsung's dedicated virtual gaming store, then project games to turn gaming into a shared experience.
As well as its full built-in projector, the Galaxy Beam is still stylish and portable. Measuring just 12.5mm thick and featuring a sleek design, the device runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, so it is quick and responsive.
