As far as software goes, everything I said in the original TouchWiz UX hands-on remains true - there are some helpful tweaks (notably the expanded QuickPanel), but with all the homescreens wallpapered with widgets, there's some obvious lag. Off the bat, I'm going to say it's a nice tablet for those wanting something in between all the 7-inch and 10-inch options, but the $469 price point seems like overload. I'd say $400 would have been a perfect price for it.

Next up, the Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 are coming stateside as well, both running Android 2.3.5 with 802.11b/g/n connectivity, 3.2-megapixel primary cams, and VGA front cams for video chat -- basically, they're Galaxy phones minus the phone part, you just need to choose whether you want a 4- or 5-inch display. Those will be available on October 16th for $229 and $269.
