Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6

Verge Review

It was just October of last year that Samsung released Galaxy Players 4.0 and 5.0 in the US, for $229 and $269, respectively. This week, the company released the Galaxy Player 3.6 — known outside the US as Galaxy S Wi-Fi 3.6 — to hit that sub-$150 price tier in an effort to provide an alternative media player to Apple’s $199.99 iPod touch. We’ve already put the 4.0 and 5.0 through the paces and came away disappointed. Has Samsung come back with lessons learned and a more competitive product?...

    Blows away the iPod touch in terms of compatibility and expansion. Android is much better than iOS has ever been and is open source, so expect hackers to start porting ICS ROMs for it soon. Overall, it's $50 cheaper than an iCrap device but $500 better due to Android.
