Thanks for taking the time to reply.

You're welcome; and thanks.

There's something missing. We have Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so where the heck is Banana Wednesday? Monkeys need deals too.

You're welcome. What color did you get?

About the only time I shop at Best Buy is during the holiday season; and most of that is online.

The higher speed classes, like class 10, are important for video cameras, etc., that make large files quickly. They can be helpful with still cameras in terms of being ready for a second shot, if your camera can take advantage of it. It would usually say so in the documentation.

It's not a factor for MP3 playback or an ereader, as far as I've ever seen.
What cromag said. For most users, standard cards are all they need. The reason I got the high speed cards is because they were cheaper at Costco than the standard cards other places were selling.

Heads up for those with a Costco nearby. Costco's Black Friday ad continues till the end of business on Sunday. The 32GB SanDisk Ultra cards are still available for $16 each.

I have the Galaxy Player 4.0 and Gingerbread works just great on it. I've yet to encounter an app I wanted that wouldn't work. I doubt Samsung will ever upgrade it to Ice Cream or Jelly Bean.

Eventually, apps will come along that won't be compatible with Gingerbread. But that's progress. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the device.

Man, you live out in the sticks! Is your nearest Office Depot in the Tri-Cities? You should move to Seattle and you'll be surrounded by tech stores.

Thanks tubemonkey.

Why do you doubt they will ever upgrade?

You know I still can't find out if a Apple is compatible with the Galaxy Player 5. I have looked in questions and answers at Samsung, read their book, and asked here. It is drag and drop the box says. But says compatible only with Windows.

Anyone? I don't want to open it if not. Probably is risky, but guess that is what I will have to do. Can you drag and drop everything?

It should be fine. If not you can use ES File Explorer or WiFi Explorer Pro to transfer stuff back and forth. No need to connect to Computer. I've never connected mine yet to my computer.

The Galaxy Players and Ice Cream Sandwich were both released in Oct 2011. I got my SGP4 last Black Friday and still no upgrade. If it hasn't happened by now, I doubt it'll ever happen.

SticksRUs ... and yes, nearest OD is Tri-Cities. Probably couldn't afford a house in Seattle though! And not much traffic here, which I like! Plus love the big sky effect out here.

But yeah, it's a long drive for most tech stores. Which is why I have hopes for Cyber Monday! And if not, well, maybe it's for the best. I don't really *need* the Nexus 7, but I'd love to play with one.

Yep. I got my SGP5 last 2011's Cyber Monday. No upgrade. I think if you root it, there might be custom ROMs, but I'm not that brave.

I've been through your neck of the woods many a time on my way to Idaho and Utah. I understand why you live out there. As for me, I'm a born and breed city monkey and need the urban sprawl. At least here, it's pretty confined to the I-5 corridor between Olympia and Everett. Head east and you hit the sticks pretty fast. I love that part, because it's always nice to leave the urban sprawl behind for a relaxing getaway.

I'm patiently waiting for my Nexus 7 to arrive. I'll definitely let you know if one hits the deals.

I'm brave enough, but I'm getting tired of doing it. Gingerbread still satisfies my needs.

I picked up an amazing one-time PS Vita bundle on Amazon as well as the new laptop I've needed for about two years. (Can't wait until it's time to replace my NC10 with something powerful -- sadly, it's running perfectly!)

Of course, I'm not going into any of that because it's all unrelated to the thread.

Cyber Monday deals could trigger more paroxysms of indecision for me and that would be fun. Perhaps I'd even give in.

Edit: Given our recent blackout in NYC, I was hoping for something like this.
