Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Player will go live starting on February 4th

Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Player will go live starting on February 4th
Sure there is no arguing that the Samsung Galaxy S is competing very well on its own against Apple's behemoth, but there are still very few opponents that can compete on the same level as the iPod touch.

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.
