The ship date for the Galaxy Players 4.0 and 5.0 has finally been announced, it's Oct 16.
It looks like Samsung did not use their Super AMOLED technology for these devices but went with a Super WVA screen. And sports as size of 4" for the 4.0 model and 5" for the 5.0.
The price is not bad and would make a very nice portable 5" reading device.
The Galaxy Players are powered by Gingerbread 2.3.5, which means they support everything you've come to love from your Android smartphone, minus of course the phone calls. Each has 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot which can handle up to 32GB. And while Samsung hasn't officially announced what's under the hood, whispers at the Samsung Portfolio event suggested a 1 GHz single-core processor with 512 MB of RAM. We'll confirm that closer to the Oct. 16 release date, when the 4.0 will hit for $229 and the 5.0 for $269. Photos commence after the break.
