Well, how about that for an opening salvo for the year from Samsung? The Samsung Galaxy Player which runs on Android OS that we told you about last year was just put up for pre-order from Amazon. The thing is, it’s only for the UK market for now. But hey, if you’re resourceful enough and you really want to get a taste of an Android-flavored iPod Touch-like device, I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to pull up some string to grab this device.
Amazon UK has put two flavors of the Samsung Galaxy media player up for pre-order, one with an 8GB storage while the other doubles up the size to 16GB. If these two storage capacities are enough for you, then be prepared to shell out £149.99 and £179.99. And in case you forgot what the Samsung Galaxy Player has in store for you, then allow us to refresh your memory.
The Samsung Galaxy Player features GPS, camera, drag and play multimedia files capability, DNLA technology, 3.2-inch color display screen, support for Android apps, expandable microSD card and of course a rechargeable battery.
