Galaxy S Wifi 4.0/5.0 or Galaxy Player 4/5?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

My iPod Touch 2G's headphone jack is faulty, and rather than fix it I'd rather get a new PMP. However, I want an Android device this time. I've had my eye on the Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 4.0 or 5.0 for some time now- they're exactly what I need- a smartphone without the phone. However, they've yet to be released in North America, which has me really impatient. I've been searching everywhere I can for official prices, or release dates, but am unable to find either.

Today, I noticed the Samsung "Galaxy Player 4/5"... These sound and look very similar, am I correct in assuming they're the same as the Wifi models, just under a different name?

Also, does anybody have any info whatsoever regarding when I can get my hands on one, and how much it'll cost me (CDN)?

Thanks!
Matt

I already got a Chinese version Galaxy S WIFI 4.0 8GB, its model is YP-G1. I got it for about CNY 1300, which is a little more than US$200. For North America, I noticed the pre-order price on B&H is US$249.

I guess Galaxy Player 4/5 and Galaxy S WIFI are probably the same stuff. The difference may be just the way it's called, since both of them are labeled as YP-G1.

Ooh, well that isn't too bad .
How would you rate it? Is it worth all this hype I'm giving it?

You could probably get a non-wifi only SGS for the same price, with a better screen right now. I see them going for dirt cheep all the time.

Hmm, I can always consider this if the Wifi never shows up... My dad has the original SGS, so I might be able to make a deal with him
