Samsung Unleashes Galaxy Player Ultra-Mobile Devices

Samsung logoSamsung today expanded the Galaxy Family of portable devices with the addition of the Galaxy Player, the first in a new category of Android-based ultra-mobile devices.

The new devices come with 4" or 5" LCD WVGA screens allowing users to enjoy games, music, videos, social media and e-books on the go.

The 4" and 5" screen models of Galaxy Player, weighing just 5 and 7 ounces respectively, boast Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) connectivity, front and rear cameras (including flash on the 5" model), stereo speakers with Virtual 5.1 surround sound and Samsung's SoundAlive post-processing technology and support for Adobe Flash 10.1.

In addition, both Galaxy Players support numerous multimedia formats including DivX, Xvid, WMV, MPEG4, H.264, MP3, WMA, AAC, Ogg, and Flac.

Drag 'N Play support means files can be simply dragged from a PC right onto the player ? no need for installing special software of any kind on the PC. A MicroSD slot allows 32 GB of extra storage, supplementing the on-board 8 GB.

Galaxy Players are DLNA Certified and support AllShare ? so content can be streamed to and from a PC or television without wires ? anywhere in the home.

The two Galaxy Player devices are the only Mobile Internet Devices with Google certification ? so they can access Android applications via Google?s Android Market.

Both devices run Android version 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to version 2.3 (Gingerbread).
