Samsung Galaxy Player (YP-GB1) to be unveiled in CES 2011

Apple has the iPod line of portable music players and they run on iOS (at least for the iPod Touch) and Microsoft have their Zune music players what does Android (Google) has to offer? Well, thanks to Samsung the Android OS world will now have a portable music player to compete with the iPod and Zune.

To be unveiled in CES 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Player (YP-GB1) is set to compete with the iPod Touch. Yup, it's not the Galaxy S (GT i9000) that's the Galaxy Player, it looks like and feels like the Galaxy S just without the phone functionality of it all.

The Galaxy Player will be powered by Android 2.2 Froyo, a 1 GHz processor, 4" WVGA touch screen display (you won't get the Super AMOLED technology on this device), T-DBM, 3.2 MP rear facing camera, a front facing camera, HD Video playback, expandable external memory (microSD card slot), WiFi, and Bluetooth 3.0.

This has all the iPod Touch has to offer except for the fact that Samsung's competitor for Apple's Retina Display can't be found in the Galaxy Player. Nevertheless, at least Android will finally have a decent challenger in the portable music player industry don't they? So CES 2011 will be really filled with devices, I am already excited, are you?

Samsung is also said to unveil two other Galaxy Players the YP-G50 and the YP-GB70. Looks like Android music players are going to make a mark in the PMP market.
