It’s been a little over a month since Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Players for the United States. The Galaxy Players have been available overseas for some time, but as of about 2 weeks ago you can purchase either model in the states. The Galaxy Player 5.0 features a 5-inch (800 x 480) Super Clear LCD display and the Galaxy Player 4.0 features a 4-inch (800 x 480) Super Clear LCD display. These are WiFi only devices similar to the iPod Touch, but you still have the full Android Market and all the capabilities of a typical Android phone minus mobile data connectivity.
Both come with a 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 3.2MP rear camera, VGA front camera, 8GB built in memory (expandable to another 32GB via microSD), and Gingerbread 2.3.5. You will find a bigger battery in the 5.0, which is at 2,500mAh, as opposed to 1,200mAh for the 4.0. You can purchase the 5.0 for $269 or the 4.0 for $229 through all major retailers. So far it looks like a really nice device for those that just want something simple to use in the house for media and playing games. I will give a full review soon, but for now, check out the initial hands on after the break.
