CES: Get ready, Korea...here comes the Galaxy Player

Samsung has announced the Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Player, an iPod Touch lookalike that is slated for a Korea-only release.

Samsung Galaxy Player

LAS VEGAS--If you're on the market for a replacement for that aging iPod Touch, Samsung's new Galaxy Player probably isn't going to cut it. Not that we think the Android-based device, announced at CES today, is a terrible thing. In fact, it has a lovely-looking 3.2-inch touch screen, a rear- and front-facing cameras, and a retractable antenna for picking up DTV broadcasts. Add to that Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS functionality as well as an SD card expansion slot and easily-removable battery, and this device is actually looking pretty sweet.

Too bad you can't get it unless you live in Korea. Samsung hasn't noted any plans for a U.S. release, although some are reporting that our friends in the U.K. will be lucky enough to be able to snatch one up. But considering the 8GB version costs a whopping 149 GBP (that's about $230), we're not sure they'll want to.
