    We'd gotten a quick look at the Galaxy Player before, but not like this: a nearly three minute video that shows that Samsung's brought a gun to the iPod Touch gunfight.
    The Galaxy Player is an Android 2.1 media player, and it looks like the first device to really go toe to toe with Apple's iPod Touch. It's got a 2MP camera, 8GB or 16GB internal memory along with a microSD slot, an FM radio, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3.2-inch screen, built-in DivX support. And access to the Android Market for all your Angry Birds needs.
    There's no price announced yet for the US, but it's currently available for at 200 euros overseas. The iPod Touch costs about the same in euros and in dollars, so we'll hopefully see the Galaxy Player come in at around 200 bucks. If you're an Android fan, you've been waiting a long time for this.

    I dunno... if we go by a standard conversion rate on the Euro's that's close to 300 dollars. Kind of pricey for a phone sized MP3 player with phone controls but no phone. And as one of the commenters asked, how can it have Android Market if it doesn't have a phone?

    i think it is great for some...needs..

    but my phone is great for all that.. I dont see why I would carry 2 devices that overlap sooo much!

    now. I might want to get this for my daughter.. who does not need a phone... and something that has GPS tracking!

    I hope pricing is cheaper than the iPods...

    It's a galaxy S without the phone bit.

    Which is exactly what Apple is doing with iPhone and iPod touch.
