Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Player will go live starting on February 4th
As we reported, the Samsung Galaxy Player (YP-GB1) is positioning itself to be an attractive option, but now it looks like pre-orders for the Android powered PMP device are going to be available very soon. Starting on February 4th, just a few days from now, pre-orders will go live for both the 8GB and 16GB flavors of the device – which are priced at 399,000 won ($356) and 495,000 won ($442).
Basically a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone minus the phone functionality, the Galaxy Player will surely prove to be a strong competitor in South Korea when it launches some time in the middle of February. However, there are some minor differences between it and the Galaxy S – like its 4” Super LCD display and 3.2-megapixel camera.

I still do not get the pricing of this little device. Personally, I felt the new 16gb nano is too expensive at $180. Make a nice little device that is easy to carry and is less expensive than the apple product and then I will start thinking about buying one. I'd rather just stay with my little sansa clip that has an expansion slot and is cheap to replace. Over $400 for an MP3 palyer; silly!!!

I have to wonder how battery life is going to be on this.

Too expensive, no thank you! If the new iTuoch is cheaper I'll go with it. I really need a new MP3 player to work out with, besides the player hasn't proven itself yet the way the itouch music UI has.
