Samsung to Compete Against Apple’s iPod Touch

Dec 28, 2010 by

After Samsung’s huge success with the Galaxy Tab, Samsung
is willing to try to reach that success again with their new Galaxy
Player with high hopes.

According to initial reports, Samsung is willing to reveal
a new portable music player to compete against Apple’s iPod Touch
in the next Consumer Electronic Show (CES). The new device, dubbed
Galaxy Player, will be 9.9mm thick, run Android 2.2 Froyo, sport a
4 inch LCD Screen with a WVGA resolution (800 x 400), a 1GHZ
Hummingbird Processor, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Of course, it’s
available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities. It seems that Samsung
is following Apple’s footsteps when they created iPod Touch: an
iPhone with no calling function, and releasing Galaxy Player after
the success of the Galaxy S. Nevertheless, Samsung didn’t stop
after all that; the Galaxy Player will feature GPS, Bluetooth 3.0,
a microSD card slot, a 1200mAH battery and SoundAlive enhancing
technology. Of course, Galaxy Players will have access to the
Android Market and Samsung Apps. While Samsung has adapted to
Apple’s strategy, it seems the company has future plans for the
Galaxy Series. Nevertheless, the Galaxy Tab was not a huge success
compared to iPad, but Galaxy S was a good start. Should Apple think
twice about what their next generation of iPod’s will include? Or
will it be a good move from Samsung but at the wrong time?
