Mirham, 20 Mar 2010My bro works for Samsung, korea...I Just got around to one of Beam's pre release unit in his o... morei am planning to buy a phone, but i am very confused between the Omnia 2 , and the Beam...
i have sum questions fa u ... does the beam have a office viewer, can it read word, excel, pdf files ??
& as you already have a omnia hd , is omnia hd or omnia 2 better than the beam in any ways ??...like i feel the omnia 2 has sum more features, like the business card scanner, tv-out, mobile tracker, pocket office, etc etc etc...
finally, is the touch better than both of these phones ??
Oh! Forgot to mention...the projector image is about 7 inches...& I think the clarity will be decent in complete darkness (I tested it in a brightly lit room).
My bro works for Samsung, korea...I Just got around to one of Beam's pre release unit in his office. Well, the one I got was running on android 1.5...my bro said that there's a lot of hardware tweaking yet to be done..the device was quite slow for that cause. But I liked the screen a lot. I transfered a D1 video from my i8910 via bluetooth & it was nice but bit disappointing 'cause of the noticable 65K color limitation of android 1.5...(The final version will have android 2 eclairs)...mind you the difference between my i8910's AMOLED and Beam's Super AMOLED is nothing big...the image is just a little bit more vibrant and bright...most noticable distinction however is just the screen resolution. The HD video recordings of beam is quite smooth but quite dark which I think is a contrast issue of the prototype. The projector is da real game here. The D1 video I played with it looked decent in da white wall but bright lights in da office ruined the pleasure. The stereo speakers sounded quite loud & clear but my Omnia HD is still louder. Unfortunately I couldn't check the gallary for which samsung is still developing a special treat. Overall the phone seemed quite promising to me once the developement gets done. If u guys wanna knw more about BEAM let me know. I'll try to get it out from my bro.
I currently have a Nokia E72 which I purchased in January 2010. It is a tremendous phone. This beauty is something else though. Unless Apple, Nokia, Sony Ericsson or HTC do something spectacular - meaning launch a jaw breaking device, this will be my next phone. I will purchase this on November 1st. It will give me time to save up as it will be expensive. I will buy SIM FREE and NOT under contract. I do advise others to start saving too. By November, other brands would have released their new handsets but this for me is the favourite. I am also curious about having Android as I have used the Symbian OS for so long. The Beam is a bit thick but I used to own a Nokia 5800 which was just as thick. It is looks decent - a natural beauty more than a supermodel stunner. As for features, outstanding. The processor at 800mhz is decent. The battery seems decent too. I will never get a phone with a poor battery hence me avoiding the Nokia N900.
if i could replace the projector with qwerty keyboard...
Though beam doesn't have wired T.V. out, it supports DLNA through which you can connect to supported T.Vs and Music systems which have DLNA via WiFi or Bluetooth.
for T.V. out you just need high end T.V. set like L.G. Scarleet etc.
In uk stuff mag April edition its due in summer. what afone tho i hope seriously it works good.
I am saving now itsabout time something revolutionary come out,,super AMOLED looks so good.. Plus decent battery altho it could be a heavy superphone..
i would like to clarify, will this phone be coming with tv out support or not?, some people here saying it doesn't have.. if that so bigger chance to call wave is better... but hope its not true...
so does it support or not? (tv out)
One of the most multimedia featured Android phone. Nice phone.
Do you know what is SAMSUNG 'S-LIFE'.
looks great but when this is going to launch.. if its too late there is plenty of products which may be far better then beam..
Coooool thing to have. Hope they'll release this phone unlike i7410.....
is the anyone out there that has been able to test the projector,what size display are we looking at and what is the clarity like
f boei, 15 Mar 201015 mm.. hahahha.. its a joke.. is this a phone or the box of the phone itself?? lol..actually it's thinner than nokia 5800.
