There was a bit of a false start regarding Samsung's iPod Touch rival, with the long-awaited Galaxy S-without-calling-options turning out to be a disappointingly lower-spec device. Now Samsung's doing it properly with this.
It's the latest Galaxy Player and this one has much, much more in common with the winning Galaxy S series of Android phones. It'll launch with the 2.2 FroYo version of Android, contains the same 1GHz processor as the phone and although the screen isn't AMOLED, a 4" Super Clear LCD ought to do much the same job unless you live and work in laboratory conditions.
The new player, known to Samsung factory assembly line staff as the YP-GB1, also features a 3.2 megapixel rear camera plus a second front-facing one for video calling. [Samsung Hub]
