Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0

Remember the Galaxy Players that Samsung sprung on the world at their Galaxy Tab 8.9 unveiling late last month? Well, we got our hands on the 5-inch model again tonight here in San Diego, and we still like what we see. A refresher: the Galaxy Players are basically Android phones minus the phone. They run the latest version of Gingerbread, skinned with the Galaxy brand's TouchWiz UI. Both the 4.0 and 5.0 come with a single core processor clocked at 1 GHz and 512 MB RAM. The 4.0 has a 4-inch screen Super WVGA Super Clear LCD at 800 x 480 resolution, while the 5.0 has a 5-inch, WVGA TFT LCD display at 800 x 480 resolution. The screens are beautiful, and the 5-inch model is a beast. They'll launch this week (October 16, to be exact); the 4.0 will run you $229, the 5.0 will set you back $269. A video and a few new pictures are after the break.
