Samsung is going to launch their hotly anticipated Galaxy Player next week at the International Consumer Electronics Show – CES 2011. The device will be the first of its’ kind as it will run on Android 2.2 (Froyo) – critics and analysts are already hailing the device as a possible iPod killer, a bold claim but one that could be true, on paper at least.
The device will be a mere 9.9mm thick, be powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird Processor, include a 4-inch touch screen, a DVB Tuner, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Dual-camera, GPS support, HD video player, Micro SD slot for memory expansion and a removable battery. So the Galaxy Player includes plenty of things that the iPod doesn’t currently have.
Whether the interface and its integration with Google’s Android market will work better than the iOS app store remains to be seen. Samsung is currently doing well in the tablet market and will be hoping that their new media player will be able to compete with the might of the iPod, which to be honest has been king for many years.
What do you think of the new Samsung Galaxy Player? Does it have what it takes to beat the Apple iPod?
