Samsung has made the Galaxy Player official, and you can expect to see it at CES. This device bears a striking resemblance to the international Galaxy S Android phone. The similarities are, in fact, not just skin deep. This device will sport a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, a 3.2 MP rear-facing camera, a 4-inch Super Clear LCD screen at 800x480, front-facing VGA camera, and a GPS chip. All this will be packed in a 9.9mm thick body.
The Galaxy Player is running Android 2.2 with Samsung's own TouchWiz user interface on top. Hopefully Samsung will be able to update this device faster seeing as it does not need to deal with carriers to get it done. Without the cellular radio, we expect the battery life on this deice to be very good. And yes, this device will have the Android Market.
This is going to be the Android answer to the iPod Touch. Pricing and release date have not been announced yet, but there will be 8, 16, and 32GB versions. Would you consider buying the Galaxy Player? What's a fair price?
