Samsung Galaxy Player : Watch out iPod Touch
CES 2011 kicks off tomorrow so expect lots of super cool gadgets to come out of it. One we know for definite will be getting a showing, and we have all the details for already is the Samsung Galaxy Player. Samsung have done their best to keep their product line as good, if not better than Apple’s. Take the Galaxy Tab for instance, many reviews rate it above the iPad and you certainly get more for your money with one. Looking at the specs of what it can do and the fact this is to the Galaxy S what the iPod Touch is to the iPhone 4 equal in every way with the fact the Sammy is slightly better specced. you can bet your bottom dollar that this will certainly be one to think about if you’re looking for a cheaper PMP that still does pretty much everything including apps.
So lets break it down.
- Runs Android 2.2 Froyo
- 2 cameras (Front-facing VGA, rear-facing 3.2MP camera)
- 1GHz processor with HD video support
- 3.2” Super Clear WVGA (800×480) LCD touchscreen
- T-DMB and SoundAlive audio enhancing technology
- WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and DNLA connectivity
- 8GB, 16GB and 32GB storage with microSD expansion
- Ogg Vorbis, Flac, XviD and DivX
- Changeable Battery
So as you can see from those it certainly offers more than your standard iPod Touch does and whats better is the price. Amazon have put them up for pre-order on their site (despite the fact the player hasn’t officially be announced yet but rumour has it down for a 7th January release after it gets shown off at CES) with the 8GB player at £150 and the 16GB at £180 so basically its cheaper than an ipod touch too. Roll on CES, can’t wait!!
