It might looked like Samsung Galaxy S II but don’t be fooled; the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 is not a smartphone. Think of it as what Apple iPod Touch to iPhone – a portable media player that has almost similar functionality as its smartphone siblings but without cellular networks capability. However, this is nothing new though as Samsung has come up with similar product called Galaxy Player back in 2011.
Internally, the device which runs on Android 2.3 is powered by a single-core 1.0GHz processor that is paired with 512MB of RAM as well as the choice of 8GB or 16GM of internal storage which can be expanded further through microSD card slot. In addition to that, the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 also features a 4.2-inch IPS display with a resolution of 480×800, 2-megapixels camera at the back, a VGA front-facing camera and a stereo speaker at the front.
It is not known for now when Samsung will actually release this device or how much will it cost to consumers but let’s be honest here, do you actually care more about a new Galaxy smartphones or Galaxy media player? Of course, there is certainly a market for personal media player but when it comes to the premium media players, iPod Touch is virtually untouchable and we doubt Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 is able to change that.
It’s previously known as the Galaxy S WiFi, but now we have official information about this PMP. Imagine it as a Samsung Galaxy S, but with all its 3G and “hello hello baby” stripped off from it, and still having its Android behaviour intact. Here are Samsung’s portable media players, and it comes with two variants, a 4-inch Galaxy Player 4, and a 5-inch Galaxy Player 5. Very much like a downsized tablet. It’ll be heading to US this spring, though price is still relatively unknown. The player will have full Market access and will come with Froyo preloaded. Samsung does mention that Gingerbread will be available very shortly after.

We’ve seen Android embracing in-flight entertainment, and printers, and now they’ll probably mass invade the PMP (portable media player) market. This is not the first time we come across an Android PMP though. What’s this? Some might know, but some don’t. This is Archos 43, an Android-based portable media player with a 4.3-inch touchpanel, support for a zillion (give or take) file formats, an HDMI output and integrated WiFi. Archos said that it’s going to ship in ‘mid-October’, but if we look at the calendar, the pre-order doesn’t seem to support Archos’s claim. The 16GB model is available for you to claim for $249.99. Let’s see when it’ll arrive if you pre-order now.
