Samsung Announces Yet another iPod-Touch-Killer-To-Be

I’ve been waiting for this for so long now. Android is popular. Very popular. It was about time someone puts it in a Media Player and tries to compete with the iPod Touch. Samsung is doing exactly the same.


Samsung Galaxy Player

The newly announced media player (YP-GB1) carries the Samsung Galaxy brandname and looks exactly like the Galaxy S smartphone. Here are the specs:

  • 4-inch WVGA (800×480) Super Clear LCD screen (Not Super AMOLED)
  • 1GHz CPU (Hummingbird I guess)
  • 8, 16 and 32 GB variants
  • Runs Android 2.2 Froyo
  • 3.2MP rear camera and a front facing video-calling camera (iPod Touch has a low-res rear camera)
  • 9.9 mm thick (iPod Touch is 7.1 mm)
  • T-DMB and SoundAlive audio enhancing technology
  • Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 3.0
  • GPS (Unlike iPod Touch)
  • microSD card slot (Unlike iPod Touch)
  • Removable Battery (Unlike iPod Touch)
  • I have serious doubts about an Android based Music Player though. For one they don’t have a Music Store yet. But one thing this will be a great device for testing Android apps for cheap.
