Samsung Galaxy Beam gets a price drop

Can you remember the review we did the other week of the Samsung Galaxy Beam? (It’s here if you can’t) Jamie came to the conclusion that it was a great phone, it was just a little bit expensive for what you got.

Well Handtec have gone part of the way to solving this problem and they have reduced the price to £329.99 inc Vat.
