No arguing there are plenty of people out there are ogling over the recent Samsung Galaxy Note, but for those that prefer something without cellular connectivity, like a portable media player of some kind, you ought to check out the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Player 70 Plus.

As the successor to last year’s Galaxy Player 50, this new version would seemingly attract the attention of people that are thinking about buying the Galaxy Note. Specifically, the Samsung Galaxy Player 70 Plus features an equally eye-catching 5-inch display, and a first in the series, a snazzy 1GHz dual-core processor. Rounding out its specs sheet, it packs a 5-megapixel rear camera, microSD card slot, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, FM radio, and a beefy 2,500 mAh battery that’s sure to give it plenty of juice.

Simply looking at the image of the device in question to the right, it can obviously be confused with the Galaxy Note, though, its benefits are mostly found in its no-contract required purchase. Well, this beastly beauty is going to launch in South Korea first for $357 for the 16GB version, or $420 for the higher 32GB one.

As it stands, there’s no word whether it’ll be sailing to our side of the globe, but if it’s like the previous Galaxy Player, it’ll more than likely come stateside in the coming months to retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon. So yeah, rather than forking out over $500 and up to pick up an outright Galaxy Note, you might find more value in picking up this one instead. Let’s hope its price goes down if/when it’s released over here.

Errr... I get paid to browse the net! :p Just kidding. I'm usually done with everything 2 hours into my shift. So I have around 6 hours to do whatever I want so long as I'm seated in front of my office computer :p

I'd be interested if it has an FM transmitter like my Nokia N97 phone.

It says FM "receiver" not "transmitter."

I like what Sammy is doing but I don't want a tablet in my pocket or on my arm when I'm exercising. They need to produce a 2.5-3" version that can last over 24hrs with audio playback while actually playing at volume level that is typical for a noisy gym.

It's actually a real tablet, not phablet like Note.

Except for the screen resolution, this sounds better than an Ipod Touch. The bigger screen, expandable memory, removable battery, and yes, and FM tuner have me sold.

Nice, but if it costs $357-420 when it arrives here, it should have a higher screen resolution.
