PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I have often wondered why there wasn't a flood of Android portable media players - now the WSJ Reports: "With the move, Samsung will round out a series of Galaxy-named gadgets that matches product for product with Apple Inc.'s line of iPods, iPad and iPhone. Samsung will have the Galaxy Player, Galaxy Tab and Galaxy smartphone. All use a variation of Google Inc.'s Android operating system and work with apps developed for it."

I think the ipod touch is a big part of the iphone's success. It allows consumers to try the platform without signing a 2 year contract.

Hopefully it won't be a piece of crap like the galaxy tab.


Who said you had to purchase an iPhone with a 2 year contract? there is the option, if you want, to buy the phone out right without a contract. Sure, it'll set you back probably NZ$800-NZ$1000 but the option is right there for you to take advantage of.

I always purchase all my phones outright because the last thing I want to be beholden to is a carrier who has me by the short 'n curlies then demand a massive payment simply to get out of the contract.
