Samsung anounces Galaxy Player 4"/5" or for us a 4"/5" eReader :)

Samsung announces Galaxy Player 4” and Galaxy Player 5” for US.

While Samsung is positioning these devices head on with the iPod Touch I see these are great eReader alternatives. There are some excellent eReading software now on the Android platform (Moon+, Aldiko, Kindle, RepliGo, ezPDF) to read almost any format thrown you way.

The question is what is the price?

I was wondering when more info on these would be finally released. I hope that the price isn't too high for them, as I'd like to own the 5" one without having to sell a kidney.

Looks like a smaller version of the WiFi Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The OS vesion says "Upgradable to Gigngerbread", with Samsung's history of providing upgrades, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Heh, that was my sentiments exactly. The saving grace is the dev community has great support for Samsung devices. I'm sporting the Nero ROM on my Vibrant and find it's way better than what came with the Vibrant.

The Samsung update problem I think is more because of carriers and over the air updates as these won't have anything to do with carriers I expect them to have faster updates than the US phones.
International galaxy s users are likely to get gingerbread this month so you might even see these come out with gingerbread.

If Samsung doesn't price these to compete with the iPod touch, they won't sell.

I for one am looking forward to these. The touch needs some serious competition.
