Samsung to take on the iPod Touch with the Galaxy Player

Wed, Jan 12, 2011


Not content to solely take on Apple’s iPad with the Galaxy Tab, Samsung is making a smart play and attempting to take on the iPod Touch as well.

The product, called the Galaxy Player YP-GB1, matches most of the specifications of its Galaxy S phone, though its 4-inch touchscreen uses a liquid crystal display instead of newer organic LED and its operating system will be a more advanced version of Android. The gadget is 9.9 millimeters thick and weighs 121 grams.

The Android-based media player gives Samsung a chance to breathe new life into its media player business, which has long languished behind Apple and, for several years, a small South Korean manufacturer called iRiver Inc.
