All these things have a common theme. Another is the Galaxy Note 5.3" AMOLED.
I too had seen the Galaxy players earlier this year, but I thought they were washed out by the Galaxy Note wave and were only to be an afterthought in history.
I have been hammering over at Archos to bring out a 5" or larger version of their Archos 43 THAT I COULD AFFORD (which means NOT the Galaxy NOTE.)
I am waiting for prices, and of course Amazon to stock these devices.
