First off, let's talk about the GoGear Connect 3.5 media player. We don't have much information on this device yet, but we do know that it's the latest Wi-Fi-enabled touch screen MP4 player from Philips. It runs on Gingerbread and will likely see a custom interface overlay from Philips. The device will offer access to hundreds of thousands of apps from the Android Market, as well as Skype communication with a front-facing camera, 720p HD video playback on a 3.5" screen, and sound enhancing technology.

It'll be available in April of this year, and go for $169.99 for an 8GB model or $199.99 for a 16GB model.

The SHE7005A and SHE9005A are obviously both in-ear style headsets, with the main difference between the two being the latter pair is a premium model that offers better speakers and customizable rubber caps for a more comfortable fit.

    I like the trend Phillips is trying to start with accessories for android including the fidelio docks. Hopefully they continue the trend and even get other companies to start trying to compete

      Same thing goes for Android media players. I got the Galaxy Player 4.0 for my 8yr old and he love it--more than his iPhone 4.

        Why give an iPhone to an 8 year old child?

          I think most for playing, not that much for calling and texting...
