New Samsung Galaxy Player Price & Launch Announced

There hasn’t been much talk about Samsung’s iPod Touch killer – the YP-MB2 media player that was unveiled back in July this year. Now, at last, there is some news about it. Now the Korean tech giant has released a teaser commercial that demonstrates the capabilities of this new Samsung Galaxy Player. If it is not very obvious from the branding, this device is going to be an Android based device that is more like a Galaxy S (forget the features) without the phone. To start with, the device will run Android 2.1 and will feature a 3.2″ screen, a 2-Megapixel camera, DLNA support, storage of 8GB 0r 16GB and a host of other features.

The specs, to be honest, look a little ‘underwhelming’ at the moment. The Galaxy Player is already on presale at some retailer in France for a price of €200. Let’s hope the device launches during the Christmas season. But going by the specs, does it look impressive to you?

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?
