Hey this phone is a monster.. I think this phone will cost around galaxy i9000 S which is supposed to be Rs 28000 in india.. But this phone was launched in korea in april as SPH-W9600 Beam, it is same as galaxy beam but it has 5MP camera and its cost is $800. Hope our galaxy beam will not cost that much..
Its released in july for asia and few weeks later in europe, nice news :D
Galaxy Beam is launching in Singapore right now, but Samsung doesn't say when we can expect it in other markets.
Amazing...! It's everybody's need in a mobile phone. It's features are all packed in. It's a must have. I want one!

I think Samsung want to make their dominant mark by making large footprints all over the mobile market. I've never seen a mobile manufacturer lease so many device so fast.
Samsung really do have massive R&D funds available. All Samsung & Nokia need to to do is continue to provide the competetion where it's needed. A bit of stimulus & pressure by releasing handsets by the week, might not help vendors like apple as much.
Who are they trying to put pressure on? Clearly the competition is needed in the software segment - the app marketplace. So if they like Nokia can achieve this. Then Apple will have some stiff competition. I think samsung are doing this so they can actually build up pletny of handsets with variety hoping that they will attract a big customer porfolio & also be able to attract developer support by making this statement. Clearly they aren't going to go away.
These handsets can only help build a developer base for more apps, hence more variety of handsets, more customers & devs in which to make it happen & achieve a solid afoundation on which to build BADA, ANDROID, APP market.
Looking at the last pic. I can't see a PICO in the so called labelled BEAM pic? unless they have changed design completely & have done well to hide or compact the PICO tech some more. I can't see this being the case though because the BEAM is suppossed to be running ANDROID? Isn't it?
So. My poorly drawn guesse is that this phone could be the successor to wave - the Wave 2. Why? Because it looks to be running BADA. This leaves the Wave 2 Pro but that's rumoured to have a built in qwerty keyboard. SO. What else could it be? Well they are planning to release an Omnia Pro 4. But GSM thing that is a Windows 7 phone. So what is this phone? It could be the Okmnia Pro 4 with BADA not Windows 7!
I love guesswork & exciting news. Of course they mention there is one other unknown device being unveiled & it does fall in the ANDROID category with the I5 series, the I9, could this be BEAM or Omnia Pro 4 desguised in a new outfit. Now I'm really intrigued over this?
So let me get this right. Samsung are going to unveil a bunch of it's BADA OS phones already! Waves successors already. ?... Isn't this a bit of rampant crazy step too far for Samsung. We know the (Onmnia Pro 4 is probably going to be on the Windows based Windows 7 Platform). Being unveiled tomorrow.
But also unveiled tomorrow are a bunch of Android phones aswell. The Galaxy S, I5500 Corby, & one unknown device. If samsung are releasing the Galaxy series I9, then releasing a series I5, then they might release the series I8. This could be our unknown I8520 BEAM. I'm worryingly nervous with anticipation in the knowing we could be badly dissapointed.
So I guesse we don't have long to wait for to find out. It only stands to reason that they would release this evice now, after releasing all the other MWC phones, it's about time, maybe they want to keep it a secret surprise. July was to supposed to be the release date, so it would figure that it get released tomorrow if anytime so they can send preview samples out to hardware jech journalist review affiliates.
Keep the hope up everybody. Keep the hope up.
Looks like we may be in for some good news on this phone tomorrow or wed hopefully. What with samsung releasing two known phone & 1 unknown.
They can't be releasing a wave 2 already surely. They've only just released the first wave phone.
WoW!! Great specs! This phone has everything the user needs!!! Great Super Amoled display,1800mAh battery!! 8Mp camera with flash,Memory slot AND uses Android!!
This one would kill Iphone 4!!
Imagen being on a hotell or something ( holiday ) and you want to watch a movie in your bed...Just beam it up the wall! i WANT THIS ONE SO BAD!
[deleted post]What do you mean ? Sadly, gsmarena deletet the former posting of 'Angry Visitor', which explains the later 'More' and 'No More Angry Visitor'. Fact is: the S8500 Wave and the I8520 Beam has been introduced on MWC 2010 in February. What happened ? The Wave has been released, a brandnew Galaxy S is available in a week, a B7722 came up and now a Galaxy Apollo has been announced. Nothing but silence about the Beam, the most exciting and promising phone next to the Nokia N8. So, since I calmed down, I have to say that's a shame of Samsung to let slip away this phone. Though I'm a Nokia User (5800), I know about its Goods and Bads. But the Bads don't affect me. They rely on internet-stuff and I'm only interested in making phone calls, listening to music and watching videos. The 5800 is perfect for that. Better than the N97, I had also a short time. To come to an end, the I8520 Beam would have been the phone to get me into the Samsung-Boat. You know the specs about it, they are great. So I'm very sad, that this one died befor it has seen the daylight.
i don t think so this phone ll arrive to markets.maybe they ll not realese it...if ok i ll change my pixon 12... i hate battery of my pixon 12...
