Although, we had seen both the Samsung Galaxy S 4.0 and 5.0 previously in Barcelona at MWC 2011, they weren’t official. Well, as of yesterday they are now officially official.
The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 rocks a 4-inch touch screen, while the 5.0 spots a 5-inch touch screen. Both devices are pretty much the same as the Samsung Galaxy S phone except with out the cellular connectivity. The Galaxy S WiFi edition will feature the Android Market. The Galaxy S WiFi will most likely be the iPod Touch’s main Android competition.
Although the Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 and 5.0 are both solid media players, but are they really necessary in a era where tablets are becoming increasingly popular and smartphones already have media players built in? I guess these devices might appeal to someone who is looking for a solid, cheap media player but doesn’t want to commit to a phone contract or doesn’t really need the service. It will be interesting to see how these devices do compared to the iPod Touch.
