Samsung unveils dual-core Galaxy Player 70 Plus

Samsung today announced a successor to last year’s Galaxy Player 50 personal media player, unveiling the dual-core Galaxy Player 70 Plus.  Arriving as the company’s first media player to boast a dual-core1GHz chipset, the Galaxy Player 70 Plus also offers consumers a 5-inch display, and up to 32GB of storage.  Looking very much like a Galaxy Note, additional details include Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, FM radio, a 5-megapixel rear camera, MicroSD support, and a  very respectable 2,500 mAh battery.

Look for the Galaxy Player 70 Plus to hit South Korea in two iterations: a 16GB (399,000 won/$357 US) and 32GB (469,000 won/$420 US).  No word on whether or not this will come stateside but we venture to guess it will slide into Best Buy and Amazon at some point over the coming months.

    I obviously don’t understand the size of this market.  It seems like the only people who could be interested in this type of device would be people who refuse to get a smartphone with a data plan.  And even then, why not buy a 7″ tablet with just wi-fi?
