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.
