In addition to the Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S Wi-Fi portable media players. In short, the Android-based devices are like the Galaxy S phones but without the cellular phone capabilities.

There will be two models. The Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.0 features a 4-inch Super LCD touch screen, while the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5.0 has a 5-inch TFT LCD. Pictured here is the 4-inch version.
