Samsung’s iPod Competition

It has been announced that Samsung will be revealing their own mp3 player based on their Galaxy S phones in order to compete with Apple’s iPod touch at CES next week. The mp3 player looks very similar to the Galaxy S phone but of course will not actually have the phone capabilities. However, it will be running on Android 2.2.

Not much is known about the device yet but reports say that it will be 9.9mm wide with a 4 inch LCD touch screen display.  Besides running on Android 2.2, the device will have a 1GHz processor, 3.2 megapixel camera with HD video playback.  It of course will have         Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS capabilities and an expandable MicroSD card slot.  And like all Android devices, you will be able to purchase and download apps from the market.

So not much is know yet, but from what is, it looks to be a great competitor to the iPod Touch and the Zune HD.  In my mind, it looks like Samsung is catching on to Apple’s selling techniques with a competitor to the iPhone, iPad, and now iPod.  What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below.
