Samsung Galaxy Player la competencia del iPod Touch?

Samsung se acaba de dar cuenta que puede hablar de tu a tu con Apple, quedó demostrado con el Samsung Galaxy Tab que amenaza con, si no destronar al iPad, por lo menos mermar su monopolio, y ahora el gigante asiático tienta el mercado con su nuevo dispositivo: Samsung Galaxy Player, un reproductor multimedia que pretende rivalizar con el iPod Touch de la manzanita, como verán Samsung tampoco renuncia a la etiqueta Galaxy que tanta suerte le ha traido.

La noticia ha sido develada en el Samsung Blog Hub (medio no oficial), y anuncia que un dispositivo llamado Samsung Galaxy Player será presentado el mes que viene y traerá una pantalla LCD de 4 pulgadas, procesador de 1GHz, cámara de video frontal, conectividad WiFi,y viene en 3 versiones: 8, 16 y 32 GB de memoria y con Android 2.2 (por que no se atreven mejor con Gingerbread?)

Samsung aún no ha dicho esta boca es mía y se mantiene silente, así que es cuestión de esperar que la noticia se confirme o se niegue.

Samsung is planning to unveil an iPod Touch competitor at CES, a new report claims.

According to Samsung Hub blog, a device called the Galaxy Player will be unveiled next month, featuring a 4-inch LCD display, 1GHz processor, and Wi-Fi connectivity. The device will boast Android 2.2 and feature 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB versions, claims the blog–which is not affiliated with Samsung in any way. In addition, the device will reportedly come with a front-facing camera for video conferencing.

In the same vein as the iPod Touch in relation to iPhone, the Galaxy Player will offer many of the features consumers find in Galaxy S smartphones, but lack the ability to place calls using a respective carrier’s network.

Samsung did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Samsung undoubtedly hopes to build upon the success of its Galaxy S smartphones with the Galaxy Player. The company announced earlier this month that it shipped 3 million Galaxy S handsets just three months after hitting the 1-million-unit-sales mark. The company has also shipped more than 1 million Galaxy Tab tablets.

Be sure to follow our CES coverage to find out more about the Galaxy Player and all else that happens at the show as it happens.
