Samsung Galaxy 3.6 / 4.2 Portable Media MP3 Players Announced

SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC. GALAXY PLAYER 4.2

Samsung announced two Galaxy Players in 3.6-inch and 4.2-inch screen sizes that provide all the functionality of Android smartphones, but without the phone feature. Think of them as an iPod touch comparable device for Android, which play MP3s, movies and games, along with access to Android Apps — without a carrier service contract.

The Wi-Fi enabled Galaxy Players run on Android 2.3, Gingerbread. The larger player gets more resolution with a WVGA screen, while the smaller one has a HVGA screen. Users can play their own video and music in a variety of formats, connect to other devices using USB 2.0 or Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, or simply load the device via a micro SD card. Plus, dual-stereo speakers (on the Galaxy Player 4.2, pictured above) deliver an incredible music, video or gaming experience.
