Samsung Galaxy Beam projector smartphone helped to light up the lives of the Chilean miners -- Engadget

Did you hear the one about the trapped Chilean miners? Turns out they were a little bit under the weather. But, seriously folks, living in a cave for a couple of months is no fun, and thankfully those guys had a crew of support people sending down all sorts of toys. One of those toys, we're now learning, was a Samsung Galaxy Beam Android projector phone, loaded with a "message of encouragement" from Chile's Mining Minister along with a recording of an exhibition soccer match between Chile and Ukraine (which we were previously told was beamed down via fiber optics ). We have to admit feeling the smallest pang of jealousy, as down there is one of the few places where a six lumen pico projector is more than bright enough.
Really cool.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Beam projector smartphone helped to light up the lives of the Chil

There can't be too many other useable places you'd want such a phone (unless under your bedsheets when you don't want your parents to know what you're watching).

Still, a phone with built in projector sounds interesting in a "I'd never buy it anyway" kind of way.
