Samsung YP-MB2 – Samsung Galaxy S Without The Phone

There are smartphones to take on the iPhone (that’s the way to put it even though the iPhone is not a market leader), tablet PCs to take on the iPad. Now, if rumors are true, there will also be new gadgets that will take on Apple’s iPod Touch.

According to reports on the Samsung Hub, the Korean company is in the process of launching a Samsung YP-MB2 – a device that is pretty similar to Samsung Galaxy S except that it cannot make calls and does not work on 3G. The device is said to be equipped with a 4-inches Super AMOLED display, 1GHz processor, a 3-Megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS and will run on Android 2.1. The device will however not require users to pay a monthly fee to the carrier and could be priced at $250 in Korea.

There is no official announcement and so this is of course a speculation. But I wonder how much of a hit this could be. Your thoughts?

  1. At the very least, I hope this serves as incentive for Apple to truly make the Touch an iPhone sans the phone (meaning, include GPS, 5MP camera, etc)
