As expected, Samsung has announced the new Galaxy Player 5.8, a mini tablet media player that can play all kinds of media as well as surf the web. It’s not a phone, so calls are not possible, but the nifty device has a 5.8 inch screen with a resolution of 960 x 540.
The operating system in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a Touch-Wiz surface. The Galaxy Player 5.8 has 16 to 32 GB of flash memory, a micro SD slot, a VGA camera on the front for video calls and a 2500mAh battery which should allow for a good battery life. Samsung has said nothing about the processor yet, but I expect we’ll hear a lot more at IFA this week.
