Poll: Does The Samsung Galaxy Player Really Have A Place In The US?

When I saw the announcement by Samsung that they were bringing the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 portable media players to the US, I paused, and thought "Uh, why?" We have yet to come up with an answer.

That's to say, we're not sure what Samsung is thinking bringing a PMP (portable media player) product line into the United States, where the iPod Touch dominates that already-dwindling market to a laughable extent. PMPs are a product of the early smartphone era, where having a device that could make phone calls, store your music, videos, and play games was simply impractical because of technological battery and storage limitations.

Samsung Mobile Unveils Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Player 5.0 and 4.0 - All Slated For October Release

It seems that T-Mobile isn't the only one with a handful of big announcements today.  Samsung has just unveiled a selection of brand new devices to give us even more to look forward to in the coming months.

Samsung has finally announced the Galaxy Tab 8.9, the slightly smaller counterpart to the 10.1. It's packing a 1GHz Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 1280x800 TFT display, a 6100mAh battery, and other specs made familiar to us by the Tab 10.1 (including Samsung's Touchwiz UX overlay).

The Tab 8.9 is available for pre-order right now, and is slated for nationwide release October 2nd, with a price tag of $569 for the 32GB model and $469 for the 16GB variety.

Samsung's Galaxy Player 50 Runs Android, Shows Up In An Ad, Goes Up For Preorder

Back in September, Samsung announced 4 new media players, one of which was of particular interest to us - the Galaxy Player 50. Out of the bunch, the Galaxy Player 50 was the only device running Android - it's what iPod Touch is to an iPhone, a Galaxy S phone without a chromosome phone.

What we have here today is Samsung's official video ad showcasing the player's capabilities, using a hilariously crooked finger, as Wired commenters pointed out. Seriously, once you see the finger, it's the only thing you can look at - I even had to rewind and re-watch to see the player itself:

The player sports the following specs, some of which, like the camera, are quite measly:

  • WiFi (obviously)
  • 3.2 inch screen
  • Android Market access
  • FM Radio
  • GPS
  • DLNA support
  • Comes in 8GB and 16GB flavors
  • 2MP camera (ouch)
  • Android 2.1

The Galaxy Player 50 is currently up for presale in France for €200 (8GB) and €250 (16GB).
