I need a frame looking like the image below in beamer. The 3rd column will have multirow text with an equation. There are no horizontal lines, neither do I need the boxes around each of the columns.

enter image description here

I tried \subfloat and \minipage. With \subfloat the text doesn't show up and with \minipage the images are placed one over other and the text is not wrapped.

\begin{tabular}{ccc}
\begin{minipage}{0.45\textwidth}
\includegraphics[scale=0.46]{images/fig1} 
\end{minipage}
\pause
&
\begin{minipage}{0.1\textwidth}
\includegraphics[scale=0.46]{images/fig2}
\end{minipage}
\pause
&
\begin{minipage}{0.45\textwidth}
\textbf{Title} \newline
                            text1 \newline 
                            text2 \newline
                            text3 \newline
\end{minipage}

\end{tabular}

How can I go about it?

beamer provides the columns environment. Within it, you specify a column environment with a given width. Together, the following generic structure is used:

\begin{columns}[<options>]
  \begin{column}{<width>}
    ...
  \end{column}
  ...
  \begin{column}{<width>}
    ...
  \end{column}
\end{columns}

It is best to specify the above <width> parameters as factors of \textwidth. As such, I've passed the option onlytextwidth to columns in the example below. Since these environments are inherent to beamer, it doesn't warrant using something like multicol. Here's an example of what you might be after - I used \rule{<width>}{<height>} to denote your graphics:

enter image description here

\documentclass{beamer}% http://ctan.org/pkg/beamer
%\usepackage{graphicx}% http://ctan.org/pkg/graphicx
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
  \frametitle{This is a frame title}
  \begin{columns}[onlytextwidth]
    \begin{column}{0.4\textwidth}
      \centering
      \rule{100pt}{150pt}% Place your graphic here
    \end{column}
    \begin{column}{0.2\textwidth}
      \centering
      \rule{40pt}{150pt}% Place your graphic here
    \end{column}
    \begin{column}{0.4\textwidth}
    Here is some regular text in a column. And there is an equation
    \[
      f(x)=ax^2+bx+c
    \]
    Here is some more text.
    \end{column}
​  \end{columns}
\end{frame}
\end{document}​

Read the beamer package documentation (p 127, section 12.7 Splitting a Frame into Multiple Columns) for more information.
