The fact that HTC offers Beats may make this popular.

You know that beats audio is pure software tweak and can be ported to other android devices as well? The fact that the galaxy series players have a state of the art dedicated DAC(which can be tweaked even more with something like PowerAMP player) makes it even cooler.

That would require certain people to actually understand more about the Android OS, which they probably won't if they're interested in a portable media player. Beats Audio is also great for marketing the device...because it's Beats Audio.

I see a Beats branded media player in HTC's future.... Question for the day is.... Do stand alone players still sell?

i would buy it cuz sometimes i just don't need my phone when i'm at work or on vacation n just want my music, books n videos. n if it has a good camera it could even be my back up for photos. so please please please let it be real! oh yes and my games cuz i could definitely use it for draw something :)

The first, and long-forgotten, stand-alone media-player/internet-tablet: The Nokia 770!
... then followed by the Nokia 800, the Nokia 810, and the Nokia 810 WiMAX Edition...
Yeah... then the iPod Touch kind of changed that whole game, too, but still... Nokia was first. Long gone now, but first...
Now we have the iPod Touch (in whatever "umpteenth generation" it's in these days...), the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2, and we are soon to have this, too?
