Samsung either envies Apple’s innovative product line or it is quite opposite. The South Korean company after chasing the domino, iPhone, starts a new expedition by following the footsteps of Apple’s iPod.
The company has released a new Galaxy Player 3.6 that just looks like an Android phone but it’s not. Rather, it is a successor of previous Galaxy Player versioned 4.0 and 5.0.
This one has a 3.65inch screen supporting 480×320 pixels. Inside the cover Galaxy Player 3.6 hides a single core Cortex A8 processor with 1GHz speed. It weighs 0.3 ounces more than the classy iPod Touch, due to its plastic body and lower price tag ($149) makes it a low-end product for consumers.
Samsung’s music player runs on Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 and comes with Google Search, Gmail, Social Hub, FM Radio, Web browser, and an icon for Google Play.
One very standout feature of Galaxy Player 3.6 is that via Bluetooth you can make calls and send and receive messages. But for that you need to stay connected to a Wi-Fi connection via, say, Google Voice.
Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 also has a front VGA camera, and a rear 2MP camera with no flash. Don’t expect very clear results but yes you capture an event any time. The player encompasses 8GB internal memory and a microSD card slot in case you want to increase the space for your files. And, there’s a 1500 mAh battery powering your music player.
Comparing it to iPod Touch might not be wise since Apple’s music player has far more better sound and build quality than of Galaxy Player 3.6 and costs you only $50 extra. Still, Samsung has made it for those who can get numerous advantages in low price.
