Media at the palm of your hands

Although we spotted it at last year's Mobile World Congress, the Samsung Galaxy Player is a contender for the iPod touch.

With its 4.2-inch, 800x480p screen, the appropriately named Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 media player has a body like a mobile phone, but comes with no data connection. Its WiFi ability let's you roam the Internet, without the network fee.

Speakers on top

To increase its music listening experience, Samsung placed the speakers on the front of the device, so users can place the screen right side up.
