Sharing photos, videos and websites amongst a large group of friends is usually something we tend to relegate to the likes of Facebook and other photo enabled social websites.  But if you’ve got a crowd in your presence who is dieing to see your Vegas photos – you know, the ones you’re never supposed to share – nothing will beat having a phone like Samsung’s GALAXY Beam.

Jammed inside this Android 2.3 based phone is a 15 lumen projector that is capable of projecting an image up to 50-inches in size.  For those looking to just makes calls and surf the web, it boasts HSPA and EDGE connectivity, a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen and 1Ghz dual-core processor.  The GALAXY Beam measures no more than 12.5mm fat, which ain’t too shabby considering it can slap an image onto any wall at a moment’s notice.  Partially responsible for its girth is the 2000mAh battery, which despite being the larger of most smartphones on the market today will probably need a daily recharge in light of the projector.  Other standard features include 8GB of on board storage (expandable by microSD card slot), 768mb of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video capture, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi N.

Sammy hasn’t said where the GALAXY Beam will land, but expect at least Europe.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
