Simon, 04 Aug 2010I ordered mine online through a singapore online phone shop. Very easy to find just search it ... moreReally? The pattern unlock might be the cause of it getting stuck? I used the unlock pattern for a day and the next day it would not boot up (stuck on Android load screen). Where did you find that information regarding the "unlock pattern" problem? Thanks!!

gsm arena site says it is released.when it will be avaialble in india,dubai and africa.sumsung must inform the customers about global release date.I expect samsung will do that.even samsung distributors also don,t know when it will be avaialable in their own show rooms
Arunavha moholanobis, 04 Aug 2010How about the battery life after you use the projector?3-4 hours

Have had no problem with the stuck screen. But I heard is got something to with the pattern unlocking, although I almost never do pattern unlocks.
All in all I am very satisfied with the Beam. The novelty that comes with the on board projector is simply wonderful :P Basically I watch my movies on the beam now instead of my monitor! 60'' in the comfort of your own room... nice!
Tank, 03 Aug 2010how is the quality of the projector? thanksDo not attempt to use this in a well lit area. You will not get good result. But for example at night with curtains drawn you can project 50-80" easily with good quality.
All in all similar performance as other pico projector

I m stuck between galaxy s and beam. could any one tell hows beam stereo speaker and projector quality ?
here is a (first?) review from china, it has some videos on projector
Hi All, I have got my samsung beam just for one day and the next day it de off after I have fully charge the phone battery and try turning is on and you know what it hang. just by showning me the startup android word. for more then 15mins I send the phone back to the shop and was brough back to samsung sevice centre. TILL NOW no news of returning. Really piss off with samsung product as this is the second time product problem issue by samsung. first my omnia II and now samsung galaxy beam. it is a good phone but poor in quality. thats is what I can say.
Received my beam today but am having trouble trying to play some mp4 files. They worked fine on my acer liquid but they are listed as unsupported file format in beam. When i tried to open them using rock player they shutter quite badly too.
Worked fine in the liquid... any have any ideas? similar cpu speed too hmm
the camera is good, i love it
I would be very happy with the phones camera were the fram rate smooth, with good detail, minimal noise if it were on par with the Galaxy S. From what I have seen the Galaxy S is on par with the Iphone 4 & seems to retain a smoother fram rate aswell. It depends on the handset, most are great with the odd few dropping frames etc...
So take a look a loads of Galaxy S videos, then take a look at the beams videos then tell me if you prefer the Galaxy S to the BEAM. I can say Galaxy S for certain!
Sorry that I am expressing my concert so much, but this is unnacpetible for a device so many people had high hopes for to replace their 5800XM or other music phones, sub par camera is not the way to sell this phone SAMSUNG?
It is questionable as to what CCD image sensor, optical lens has been employed in this phone. We know that the camera has a higher Mp, but the Mp is unimportant. For now the Wave & Galaxy S employ the same optical lens, CCD image sensor at 5Mp & the quality is easily discernable. You just can not accept the amount of artifact compression noise, dropped frames that are very visible, laggy especially in low light. Maybe the CPU is the cause or the bottlneck, but I should think the 720Mhz CPU can handle 1280x720P should it not? If this is the case, then the CCD, lens or some other anomoly is the cause for the poor Video qualitywhich isn't HD!
So I got mine in yesterday. Had it for one day. The next day it froze on me, so I tuned off cell. Afterwards, it would not boot up. it got stuck on the "Android" logo loading screen. I did the usual.. remove battery and after a few retrys, it failed to boot up. Sad now, I have to send it back to Samsung. When it was working, the projector was cool!!
