If you’ve been wondering what happened to the Samsung Galaxy Player which we were able to play around with during CES 201, well here’s the latest news about from Samsung. The Samsung Galaxy Player is finally hitting the U.S. Market and in fact will be available in two models – one with a 4-inch display and the other with 5-inch display.
Both Samsung Galaxy Players will feature Wi-Fi 802.1 b/g/n, front and rear cameras, stereo speakers and will support Adobe Flash 10.1 And yes it will be running on Android 2.2 OS but can be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread later on. In addition, the 4-inch Samsung Galaxy Player will also be preloaded with Skype app so that you can instantly use it for VoIP calls over Wi-Fi. And since both media players will be running Android, you can pretty much install other social networking apps and use the devices to access your Facebook, Twitter and other social networking accounts.
Other features of these Samsung Galaxy Players include – virtual 5.1 surround sound, Samsung’s SoundAlive post-processing technology, WVGA LCD, supports various video and audio format including MP3, WMA, AAC, Ogg, Flac, MPEG4, DivX, Xvid, WMV, and H.264. In addition, both media players will support microSD card up to 32GB storage capacity in addition to their on-board 8GB memory.
Unfortunately, while Samsung is all out in announcing about the specs and features of these two Samsung Galaxy Players, they forgot to announce the price and release date yet. Hopefully we’ll learn about these information soon.
