Samsung Galaxy Player: Pre-Order Now From Amazon

Just after Christmas 2010, we reported on news of a new device rumored to be Apple’s iPod Touch competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Player. At that time, it was difficult to really give you any idea of price along with release date, but today that is all about to change thanks to the guys over at Pocketlint.

The new Android device, is reported for release on 7 January 2011 and from online site Amazon, you will now be able to pre-order one of these Player’s in white, at a retail price of £150, that’s £40 cheaper than Apple‘s own 8GB iPod Touch offering.

Although for some time now, the iPod Touch along with lets face it, all of Apple’s products, has been a pretty stiff competitor to beat, Samsung’s newest addition will not only bring DNLA compatibility, but a 3.2-inch TFT-LCD display, 1000 mAh replaceable battery, Wifi, SD card to expand the memory and a free range to the Android market.

Ok, so many of you may be thinking that it lacks the retina display that the Touch has but from the one thing it loses, it definitely gains with other features. As well as an 8GB version, the Player comes as a 16GB for an extra £30 more.

Will you be swayed into pre-ordering a Galaxy Player at a cheaper price? Let us know.

    the MicroSD card is a big advantage! something apple is scared to do. hopefully it can play the SlotRadio cards that my sansa fuze plays, which are those 1000 songs pre-loaded cards that they sell at radio shack and best buy. hopefully it also has a built-in HD Radio reciever like the Zune players. in order to beat the big dogs, you'll have add all available features!

    Galaxy Player 50 runs Android 2.1, not 2.2. Android 2.2 will feature on the new Galaxy Player due for release in Q2 2011.
