The Texas Instruments Pico Projector has the ability to project a screen as small as 5 inches and as big as 50 inches. StarHub will be the first operator globally to launch the Galaxy Beam. The phone will make use of the Android platform (V2.1) and will come with apps such as the StarHub Mobile TV app.

It will also come with the augmented reality browser, Layar. With Layar you will be able to find restaurants and bars, find your way home, find which bands are playing in the area, etc. The Galaxy Beam will only be available to StarHub customers in Singapore for now, but should make it stateside at some point, assuming a thumbs up by the FCC.
