Best handheld for the money?

So i heard that the Galaxy Player 5.8 might come over to the U.S., i was thinking about getting it, because the large screen seems like it would make it look cool, however, i was wondering if this were the best handheld i can get for the money. I don't have the money to afford a smart phone with a phone contract, so this is something i want to buy. Would the Galaxy Players be a good handheld to buy? i want to play music, go on forums, go on youtube, on the handheld.


Nexus 7 is an awesome device and insanely cheap. Not to mention its running stock android jelly bean and comes with a 32GB cellular editon.
