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."

They aren't selling them in stores which is what matters.

People can ask for a touch for Christmas and then later get an iphone. The touch is also popular with teens and kids as a gaming device. Samsung is making a good move here.


I don't know about the US where everything seems to be 30 years behind New Zealand but I can buy it straight from Apple online, Magnummac, Noel Leeming, Bond & Bond, JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smiths and, Vodafone online store and 'bricks and mortar' shop all full price and without a contract. I can then take that phone and run it on XT Network, Vodafone or 2 Degrees if I so wish. Maybe the complaint should be about the antiquated way in which the US mobile phone market operates instead of using the US as the 'example' or 'litmus test' as to how the rest of the world operates.

Edit: I hope my post didn't come off as overly aggressive but one has to take into account the US experience cannot be replicated globally.

Edit 2: I'm surprised you're singing the praise of it given that apparently the 'Galaxy Tab has turned me off of tablets':
