Samsung’s Galaxy Player Will Be Showcased at CES

Next week figures to play huge for Android as CES 2011 gets underway.  HTC will deliver a fancy 4G phone, Motorola will announce a cool Honeycomb tablet and numerous manufacturers won’t bring Google TV devices. And Samsung? Samsung expects to bring a Galaxy S that isn’t able to make calls.  In other words, the long wait for the “Android iPod Touch” is nearly over.

Hardware looks very solid and Galaxy S-like with a 4-inch (800×480) Super Clear LCD screen, Android 2.2, a 1GHz processor, 3.2-megapixel camera, and front-facing VGA camera.  The Galaxy Player comes in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB flavors and supports the Android Market, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS.

    Um, the archos 28/32/43 pads sure look like an “android iPod Touch” to me – and were available for christmas. I bought my mother one as a gift to replace her aging iPod touch (it’s no longer supported, so she can’t install new apps or upgrade existing apps from the app store), and she was delighted with it – even before sideloading the android market.

    Which is the one downside for these things – you have to sideload the android market app.

    I don’t understand the point of this. Why not just get and SGS?

  • I am soooo looking forward to the new tablets and the Adobe Flash support. If the Flash animations run too slowly, I do hope they are talking to the folks at Animated Media inc about integrating their VGK platform.

  • hmm, it looks great feature…
