As anticipated, Samsung has announced their latest media player, the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8.  Details for the massive handheld put it firmly between Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab 7 space, with reasonable hardware and an Ice Cream Sandwich experience.  We don’t have a price just yet but we’ll likely get that at IFA or closer to retail availability.

Specs for the Galaxy Player 5.8 include:

  • 960×540 5.8-inch display
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 2,500mAh battery
  • microSD card expansion
  • 802.11b/g/n wireless networking
  • GPS support
  • Front-facing video camera
  • Available in 16GB or 32GB models.

What do you think about this new Galaxy Player? Worth the cash orr would you just buy a Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note?
