Samsung GALAXY Beam Eyes-on

Samsung GALAXY Beam Eyes-on

This week Samsung has revealed a brand new take on projecting content, namely slotting this technology in an Android Samsung Galaxy smartphone with the Samsung GALAXY Beam. This is not the first time a smartphone has been integrated with a projector in this way, but judging by this first look we've had at the GALAXY beam, "Sharing Big Fun and Big Ideas" is much more real than ever. This device is the world's slimmest projector phone at 12.5mm with a round back for an extra comfortable grip. Samsung aims to improve both the size of the device (making it as small as ever) and the quality of the projector - now a 15 Lumen brightness with NHD 640 x 480 resolution model running with this device's dual-core 1GHz processor under the hood.

And it's going to launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

This reveal will end up being the first time we've seen a quad-core System on Chip working on a device smaller than a tablet, and in true classic fashion, will mark one year exactly since we first laid eyes on the original announcement of Tegra 3, then code-named Project Kal-El. Superman has since landed on the Asus Transformer Prime and will soon find its way onto several other tablets, also perhaps being released at this same set of events.

This week the folks at Qualcomm are letting loose a bit more information on what's now set to be called Snapdragon GameCommand, an environment not unlike what we've seen thus far from NVIDIA and their Tegra Zone, both arenas containing games that, at least for a limited time, work only on their own chipsets. We first heard about this Qualcomm project back in June, it then being nicknamed the Qualcomm Snapdragon Game Pack. Since then they've given a face and a brand new application to the project, and it'll all be shown off on the 10th of this month, right in the middle of CES 2012.

Samsung Captivate Glide review

Samsung Captivate Glide review

When it comes to releasing new devices, Samsung and the rest of the manufacturer bunch doesn't always aim for the top of the ladder - case in point, the Samsung Captivate Glide, a dual-core smartphone with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display and a slide-out keyboard. This device is being released on AT&T's 4G network (not LTE, mind you, just regular ol' 4G) and is currently one of the only dual-core smartphones with a keyboard on the market. If we turn away from the keyboard for a moment and focus on the rest of the device, I think you'll find that while this handset certainly doesn't seem to be up to the task of beating down the very top of the pack of smartphones out today, it's certainly a wrestler for the dual-core lovers of you out there in AT&T Land.
