If you were watching our MWC coverage closely, you'll recall the Samsung Galaxy Beam, a quirky 4-inch Gingerbread device with a 15 lumen pico projector. That means you can fire images up to 50 feet away from the device, making it the ideal choice for buyers who want to screw with their pets, or hold impromptu Powerpoint presentations on-the-go.
In any case, the Galaxy Beam has shown up today on UK retailer Clove Technology, with a surprisingly high pre-order price tag of £454.80 including VAT, or £379 (~$600) excluding VAT. For your money, the Galaxy Beam also delivers a 1GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD card. So you're mostly paying for that pico projector, and if you're after a mainstream smartphone there are certainly better deals to be had elsewhere.
There's no word on when (or even if) the Galaxy Beam will venture outside of European markets. But if you want to take a look at what it's capable of, you can check out our hands-on feature from Mobile World Congress after the break.
