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.
Earlier today, Apple announced that one of their latest products, the iPad, will be available to Verizon Wireless users on October 28th. The iPad and its bundle will cost $630 for a 16GB model, $730 for a 32GB model and $830 for a 64GB model. Besides this, Verizon will also offer a $20 monthly data plan for up to 1GB of data.
Although this is great, Verizon will unfortunatly not be selling 3G versions of the iPad. To replace this, they will be selling the regular Wi-Fi iPad with their own mobile hot spots which will allow users to connect to the internet anywhere where the 3G network can be used.
Many people believe that this is a start to something great. With Apple making a “bond” with Verizon Wireless we could start seeing Verizon selling more Apple products such as the iPhone as early as early next year.
What are your thoughts on the Apple-Verizon bond?
A couple of days ago, RIMM announced their newest tablet computer in San Francisco. The tablet is said to be a strong competition against Apple’s iPad because of the Playbook including some features the iPad lacks.
These features that are missing on the iPad would be both front and rear facing cameras, making telephone confrences that much better. Also, Adobe Flash will be included with the Playbook which will bring the user’s online experience to a whole new level. Besides that, the Playbook will include traditional Blackberry security features and it will also be smaller as well as lighter than the iPad. And to top it all off, the Playbook will be able to access the internet through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
As for now, no prices have been set. The tablet isn’t said to be released till early in 2011 but so far, it looks like it will be giving Apple’s iPad a run for its money.

Lately, there has been a lot of hype of rumors about the upcoming tablet made by Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy tab. Samsung released plans explaining the tablet earlier this year but it seems as though they will be launching the device in the upcoming weeks at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.
The tablet itself will have a 7 inch Super AMOLED display screen and will run on Android 2.2OS a.k.a “Froyo”. Besides that, the tablet will have a 1.2GHz A8 processor and will come installed with 16GB of internal storage. Although it only comes with 16GB, it can be expanded to 48GB if you so choose.
From all of this info about the new tablet, I believe that it will be a big hit compared to Apple’s Ipad. With the large screen, 48GB of storage, fast processor, and the ability to play flash videos, it’s hard to not like this device.
