Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 launches in South Korea, coming to the US and Europe soon
At one point not too long ago, the vast offerings available with today’s modern smartphone seemed to be the kiss of death to most dedicated portable multimedia devices, but strangely enough, that’s not necessarily the case anymore.

Although it first came to light back last September, the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 is finally starting to make its rounds – well, it’s only in South Korea for now. Embodying most of the functionality found with Samsung’s line of Galaxy smartphones, except for the obvious fact it’s not enabled to make phone calls, this multimedia portable device will actually be coming to Europe and the US very soon.

Some of its features include a 3.6” WVGA touchscreen, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 3-megapixel rear camera, front-facing VGA camera, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the OS of its choice. It’s not a goliath like its 5-inch sibling, but then again, it’s considerably easier to handle for most people. In terms of storage options, you can either choose to go with 8GB or 16GB of memory – the former of which retails for roughly $174, while the other is at $209.

Obviously, if you happen to own an equipped smartphone already, this might not seem to be something worthy enough to warrant a purchase. However, if you have children that are constantly down your throat asking to play around with your smartphone, then this will easily be a no-brainer solution to keep them from using your prized beauty. Of course, you can import this baby right now if you’re desperate – but for the rest of us, we’re simply left waiting for an official launch date and price for the US market.

I would get the 4.0. It goes on sale now for almost as much as this one is going to cost new.

The Player 5 is a flop; the Player 4 is a flop, so Samsung decides to release 3.6? You wonder the what the hell the Samsung executives are thinking? It's going to be another flop because it's launching with Gingerbread when ICS is the latest version. The camcorder is 3MP versus iPod's 5 MP that records in 720 HD.
