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."

Really? The only reason I bought a Grundig MP3 player 2gb was because the damn thing is exactly 2 times cheaper than iPod shuffle 2gb.


Too bad you can't purchase it where I live - 2GB though would be entirely useless for me anyway given that I compress mind in 'true VBR' which ~320K which means I need the space.

I've yet for someone to show me where I can get a 160GB mp3 player that is the same or cheaper price than the iPod Classic. Ok, lets take the Cowon J3 for example which I can pick up NZ for NZ$462 for the 32GB model, or I can pay $38 more and get a mp3 player that has an operating system with access to a huge array of applications can be easily purchased from any high street retail store plus up to 3 years of operating system updates when compared to the 'lets abandon our customers after 6 months' mentality that Archos and Cowon seem to be happy to do.
