Samsung’s Galaxy One Projector Tablet Concept Brings Innovation to Business Meetings

Samsung Galaxy OneBusiness professionals love projectors. Not only are they integral in most business meetings and conferences but they are also convenient and great pieces of tech to have handy. Technology makers are starting to realize that business professionals are using projectors more frequently and have started integrating them into things like cell phones and laptops.

While cell phone and laptop projectors are becoming more and more common, technology creators are looking for new ways to make projectors easy to use and more accessible and convenient. That is why Samsung has announced the Samsung Galaxy One, a concept Windows 8 tablet that comes with an integrated projector.

For the time being, the Samsung Galaxy One is just a concept, which means it may or may not happen. However, this is definitely a unique idea and something that Samsung should seriously look into. The ability to use the full touchscreen of the tablet while simultaneously projecting and editing is something that many business professionals would probably be interested in.

The designers behind the Samsung Galaxy One have made special use of a variable-angle projector that is able to be used with the tablet positioned in a variety of different positions. In addition to that, the Samsung Galaxy One has two built-in stands, which means it can manage a 10-degree angle or a 25-degree angle.

The Samsung Galaxy One, if it even comes out, will also come with a stylus as well as a 14 mm aluminum body. Overall, the concept is fantastic. Having a projector in a tablet is the ultimate form of portability and performance. This is perfect for business professionals who constantly travel or give presentations. I really hope this gets off the ground and it’s up to Samsung to make it happen. I’m sure if the Samsung Galaxy One doesn’t take off, another device similar to it will come along in no time.

Samsung Debuts Second Generation Beam Smartphone Projector

Samsung BeamJust under one month ago, Samsung released the Beam, a small smartphone running Android 2.3 that comes with a built-in projector capable of projecting a 50″ high-definition image. While its power may not be substantial, its ability to quickly project something directly from your smartphone has benefits, especially in a small meeting setting where you could easily post quick information directly from the internet.

What may surprise you is that this isn’t the first projector-equipped smartphone Samsung has released. The company released a very similar product back in 201o, also called the Beam. However, technology has advanced to the point where marketing a new, improved device is a viable business move for Samsung.

The Beam ships with a specific app completely dedicated to the integrated projector. The app is used to select certain content and activate projection in a few steps. But the projector isn’t the only thing the Beam brings to the table. The device is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and comes with 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The screen is only 4″ and has a native 800 x 480 resolution.

There is nothing too impressive about the Beam in terms of specs except for the rather surprising 6GB of RAM. A 5MP camera is also included for users who want to project their very own content whenever and wherever they want to that also records in 720p HD, which isn’t too shabby. Overall, the device is also very portable, only weighing 5.1 ounces and measuring 1.25cm thick.

The Beam will initially ship in Sweden in July for $570. Samsung did not immediately comment on availability and pricing outside of Sweden so keep your eyes and ears locked here for all the details.
