Inside this box we have the Samsung galaxy beam and it's not even out yet we'll get to the -- part in a minute but we taped it on does so again I have a proper -- boxing. Never mind you once again -- -- always work better -- sensors for opening boxes. -- -- -- Fever. Here can go home galaxy. The Yuma and light up and share. Traveling inside -- box here. One thing you'll -- -- right off the bat. Does the bumble bee motif with the yellow all around the edges phones also pretty big and heavy. There are some good reasons for that patients are to be prepared for at least the vagueness. And the -- current let's run through some specs. The galaxy name has a one gigahertz dual core processor and eight gigs of built in storage it has a 4 inch super -- -- led display. A five megapixel camera with a flash and a one point three megapixel front facing camera. It ships with I am sorry to say Android gingerbread. It does have a bigger battery 2000 -- -- to help -- that projection although it's not as good as the RAZR Max which has a 3300 -- battery. It also has a micro SD card slot which is expendable up to 32 gigs. Now -- about and -- are probably thinking why would I buy that phone I mean it doesn't even ship with Ice Cream Sandwich and let's be honest those specs are kind of middle and plus the Samsung galaxy S three is out we'll cable here's the hook on this one. It's got a built in Pico projector. Get it -- it's a projector. The projector bulb puts out a brightness of fifteen ligaments it creates an NA HD image with a resolution of 640 by 360. And the image can be up to fifty inches it has various apps to control projection and playback. And something called -- -- mode which lets you play any song or still image for a specific duration. You can use this little phone to -- videos or slide shows or pictures onto a wall up to six feet away. -- surprisingly excited about this or at least I want is. Until I -- Samsung's collection of heart -- video showing you all the possibilities. I'm not as pretty as those people but I totally did this with kid pictures -- kinda. Whatever -- so my videos not as heart warming is Samsung's videos which by the way. We're not very heartwarming and all like you're not really pollen off -- face time thing in the music is annoying and all I can think about is how all those kids are too young to have kids and I just. I don't know that's not working but the -- being. Might be surprisingly cool. All vote. Samsung has not given us a US release date for this on right now. You can order an unlocked version for about 600 dollars and then routed to get a decent version of -- on it. But I think at that price he got to ask yourself if the beaming. Is really worth it.
