Samsung and StarHub Announce Launch Of Galaxy Beam
Singapore, July 8, 2010 – Samsung today announced the world?s first smart projector phone Samsung Galaxy Beam (Model: GT-I8520) will be available to StarHub customers from 17 July 2010. StarHub will be the first in the world to introduce Galaxy Beam in Singapore, which is set to illuminate the future of smartphones with its built-in Pico Projector coupled with power-packed features and a crystal clear Super AMOLED display.
Early in 2010, StarHub launched an enhanced mobile TV application that works across all major smartphone platforms to provide a TV-like viewing of 24 premium StarHub TV channels on smartphones. This mobile TV app will be pre-loaded on the Samsung Galaxy Beam. In addition, StarHub customers can use MobiClip, a mobile web video search service to easily search and stream videos found on user-content generated sites like YouTube and MetaCafe directly on their mobile phone. MobiClip is accessible from StarHub?s Gee! mobile site.
The built-in multimedia projector on the Samsung Galaxy Beam allows customers to share fun moments intuitively with family and friends, such as watching National Geographic Channel or Disney Channel, browsing photo albums, as well as streaming YouTube or MetaCafe videos together through MobiClip.
The Samsung Galaxy Beam?s highly responsive 3.7-inch WVGA SUPER AMOLED display will further enhance the mobile experience, delivering ultra-brilliant and clear images whilst offering a viewing experience second to none. With the Android powered Galaxy Beam, consumers will receive an integrated and heightened multimedia experience on Singapore?s smartest mobile broadband network with StarHub.
Packed with a built-in Texas Instruments Pico projector, 8-megapixel camera and multi video codec support, the Galaxy Beam offers consumers the capability to switch between entertainment and professional mode easily. With a projection screen size of 5 to 50-inches, the Galaxy Beam toggles between a personal home theater system to a portable business projector to suit every need.
The Samsung Galaxy Beam will be available at all StarHub Shops and selected Exclusive Partners outlets from 17 July 2010, from as low as $0, on selected price plans. From 10 July 2010, customers can visit selected StarHub Shops to check out the phone. Those interested to place an advanced order now can go to www.starhub.com/samsungbeam.
