Samsung is planning to unveil an iPod Touch competitor at CES, a new report claims.
According to Samsung Hub blog, a device called the Galaxy Player will be unveiled next month, featuring a 4-inch LCD display, 1GHz processor, and Wi-Fi connectivity. The device will boast Android 2.2 and feature 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB versions, claims the blog--which is not affiliated with Samsung in any way. In addition, the device will reportedly come with a front-facing camera for video conferencing.
In the same vein as the iPod Touch in relation to iPhone, the Galaxy Player will offer many of the features consumers find in Galaxy S smartphones, but lack the ability to place calls using a respective carrier's network.
Samsung did not immediately respond to request for comment.
