Samsung Galaxy Beam

Google I/O attracts attendees from around the world so it's only fitting that it should feature global Android phones as well. Along one wall at San Francisco's Moscone Center, Google displayed a gallery of Android handsets dating back to the G1. Many of the featured handsets are available in the United States, but quite a few can be found only in other countries. Here we present those overseas devices along with a few specs.

The Galaxy Beam's highlight is a small projector. You also get an 8-megapixel camera, a 3.7-inch display, a 3.5mm headset jack, Android 2.1, Samsung's TouchWiz interface, Assisted-GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
