Another Android phone getting ready to hit shelves isn't usually huge news, but a phone equipped with a projector is definitely exciting. Singapore has dibs on the Samsung Galaxy Beam, the first projector equipped phone which will be available from StarHub on July 17th.

The Beam, which was originally dubbed "Halo" when unveiled at the Mobile World Congress, sports a lot of the usual features from new Android phones: 3.7" Super AMOLED display, Android 2.1 onboard with 2.2 a possibility soon, an 8mp camera, WiFI, and Bluetooth. But the pico projector is the big selling point; a Texas Instruments powered DLP setup that can put up an image on a wall from about 50 inches away. In a dark area, the lens can show a video or image 800 by 400 pixels and has enough lumens to throw a vivid 60-inch image onto a wall.

Availability outside Singapore is still up in the air at this point, but one can only believe that this will be the start of this tech invading smartphones and helping them become the only device you ever need to carry with you.
