Samsung Galaxy S WiFI 4.0 and 5.0 take on Apple iPod touch

Samsung today announced the select availability of their new Android media players. The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 sports a 4-inch screen while the Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 offers a large 5-inch display.

“With the GALAXY S WiFi 4.0 and 5.0 we’re delivering a rich, immersive experience for multimedia enthusiasts.” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business. “A large, high-quality screen, a world of fun and useful applications and great communications services make this a powerhouse device at an affordable price.

The GALAXY S WiFi 4.0 will be first available in Russia and will be gradually rolled out in other countries. The GALAXY S WiFi 5.0 will be first available in Switzerland. Samsung did not reveal any specific dates for the roll-out of the Galaxy S players in the United States. There is also no pricing information.

Analysis:
The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi devices have all features to effectively compete with the Apple iPod touch. The WiFi 5.0 with its large 5-inch screen is something Apple does not offer. The iPod line is not a growth factor for Apple anymore, which also suggests that Samsung will not sell a ton of these players. If you do not need the iTunes eco-system, the Galaxy S WiFi are worth your consideration if the pricing is competitive with the iPod touch.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
