    Samsung Beam Features Built-in Projector

    Hot off the press in Barcelona comes a new addition to the Samsung Mobile family–and it’s like nothing they’ve done before. While other companies are adding better screens, faster processors and more powerful GPUs, Samsung knows consumers want a bit more–like the ability to share photos, videos and other digital media. But we’re not talking wirelessly – we mean with a built-in projector! Yep, flat surfaces now become your canvas for projecting the ultra-bright 15 lumens worth of memories anywhere there’s wall space (or ceiling space, depending on your mood). The Samsung Beam is capable of projecting a 50″ high-def image, while still handling all of its duties as an Android 2.3 smartphone. Intrigued? We certainly are…and you can check the full release after the jump.

     
  • Happy iPhone 4S Day!

    Happy iPhone 4S Day!

      Sure, we’re still waiting for the UPS truck to pull up with our iPhone 4S–but many of our lucky readers already have their new devices in hand. Here’s a shot of the local Apple Store near our Woodland Hills office, and as you can see this launch is a bit more orderly than most. While some may be quick to attribute the smaller crowds to a lukewarm reception for the new iPhone, the more likely reasons are the 8am launch time (Apple usually launches new iDevices at 5pm) and large number of pre-orders. We’ll be following up with more news as soon as we have our phone in hand.

  • Revisiting The Samsung Captivate

    Revisiting The Samsung Captivate

    After spending a couple weeks with the Fascinate on Verizon, and now using an Epic 4G as my daily driver, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at one of the GSM flavors of the Galaxy S. The Vibrant on T-Mobile (which our editor in chief Mitchell uses as a back up phone) and Captivate on AT&T were released within days of each other, so I opted for the Captivate. I’m glad I did.
