Samsung has had great success with the Galaxy S smartphone and also the Galaxy Tab tablet, they also launched another new Galaxy device which they were hoping would take on the iPod Touch, the Samsung Galaxy Player.
One of the reasons that Apple has been so successful with the iPad Touch, is that it has all the features of the iPhone, excluding the phone part, while Samsung’s first Galaxy Player featured lower specifications than the Galaxy S smartphone.
Samsung will be showing off a new Galaxy Player at CES 2011, and it looks like this new version has much more in common with the Galaxy S smartphone, it will come with Android 2.2 Froyo and will feature a 1GHz processor.
There is no AMOLED display though, instead it will come with a 4 inch Super Clear LCD display, plus a 3.2 megapixel camera and a front facing vga camera for video chat.
It will be interesting to see what the new Samsung Galaxy player is like, and whether it is able to compete against the massively popular iPod Touch.
