Samsung to show off Galaxy Player - a Galaxy S derived Froyo-based PMP - at CES 2011

Seems like Samsung is following in Apple’s footsteps once again, and plans to release a portable media player that is just as subtly emasculated as the iPod Touch is with respect to the iPhone 4. It will supposedly be shown off by the Korean giant at the upcoming CES 2011 show, where Motorola will show off its Android Honeycomb tablet.

Known as the Samsung Galaxy Player, the device will be physically and internally similar to the Samsung Galaxy S, apparently retaining the same 9.9mm thickness while doing away with 2G and 3G connectivity, and the high res rear camera.

While this makes it a fair bit thicker than the razor slim 7.2mm iPod Touch, it certainly isn’t going to be uncomfortable to hold or carry around. As for other features, the device will sport a fully-funcitonal Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. making the player just as multi-faceted (and without the dependence of iTunes, maybe a little more) a device as the iPod Touch, doing everything from email to gaming to productivity.

[RELATED_ARTICLE]The device will have access to both the Android Market and the Samsung Apps stores and will also have a GPS sensor on board, something the iPod Touch doesn’t have.

The Galaxy Player will feature a 4-inch SuperLCD screen (800x480) instead of the Galaxy S’ Super AMOLED screen, but then again, that’s expected, with Samsung pushing the former technology as the future of displays. It will sport a 3.2MP camera at the rear, with a front-facing camera for video calls.
