Samsung are boasting that the Galaxy Player has impressive video and audio support, as well as access to the Android Market. It also ships with a full suite of Google Apps, Youtube, and there's special emphasis on Skype being available through the Android Market.
The estimated battery life for this 6 oz. wonder is 60 hours of music or 8 hours of video. You can find it for $270 on JR.com.
Samsung is hoping that you'll decide to replace your phone with theGalaxy Player ; that's why it has the speaker, mike, and Skype. It seems to me that they took a phone and simply swapped out the 3G chip.
I was a little surprised to see the price; that's a little rich for my tastes. It's also a lot higher than most Android budget tablets. Sure, the Galaxy Player will likely have a better build quality, but there's something to be said for a larger screen size.
Also, the Galaxy Player is clearly designed to compete with the iPod Touch, right? Well, the iTouch starts for a lot less than the Galaxy Player. I don't see that this baby has a market.
