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."

Abandonment - In this case the music player will not be connected with a particular service provider. This will make it very easy for Samsung to provide updates. My guess is, that as long as the Hardware can support it, the updates will come. Of course the other thing is that with Android, there is an awful lot of functionality that can be added by third party apps. There are no restrictions like Apple has, so in the end, large updates may not be as big a player as they might be otherwise.
