Has Samsung created a real competitor to the iPod touch?
21 November 2011
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Player has two distinct advantages over the iPod touch: its wide file support, and its expandable storage. Those are important features, and they might win some users, but they’re not enough to overtake the iPod. The iPod has access to more and better apps, it’s easier to sync and manage on your computer, and most importantly it’s just a better music player.
Pros: Decent bundled headphones, Full Android Market access, Touchwiz adds some good media-related functions
Cons: Display's resolution is too low, No good iTunes equivalent for Android, Both 4.0 and 5.0 are awkward sizes
