Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Unboxing and Initial Review

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.

Samsung Galaxy Player 4 and 5 launching this Spring in US

galaxy-player-5.0

A few months back, we showed you our hands on video and images for the Samsung Galaxy Player which we saw at CES 2011 back in January. It looks like the time has finally come around for us to get our official hands on it, as we hear from Samsung that this will be available in the US coming this Spring, which is really just a few days away.

This is Samsung’s way of making competition a little more fierce against Apple’s iPod Touch, as this is essentially just that, running Android 2.2 out of the box, and upgradeable to Gingerbread soon after.

I’ll say this…if Samsung wants to make a run at Apple’s iOS devices, they’re going to to have to develop a better program to sync/purchase music than the current ‘Kies’ program. It sucks to put it bluntly.
