PMP

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 3.6 confirmed for the US

In Samsung's never-ending quest to fill every screen size niche down to the millimeter, they announced the Galaxy S WIFI 3.6 at IFA back in September. At the time there were no plans to extend it to the United States, but it looks like they're shipping it over after all. Unfortunately, Samsung wasn't forthcoming with a price or date for the portable media player, but it shouldn't be too long before it joins the North American lineup. Previously Samsung has offered its Galaxy Player/Galaxy S WiFi series in only 4 and 5-inch versions in the United States.

Samsung Galaxy Player 70 Plus updates the 5-inch PMP

Another day, another Android announcement from Samsung. This time it's another entry in their Galaxy Player line of connected personal media players, now in its third generation. To Compliment the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2, they're bringing out the Galaxy Player 70, a 5.0-inch refresh of their somewhat more accurately named Galaxy Player 5.0 from last year. The biggest upgrade is a dual-core 1Ghz processor, which makes it the first device in the "media player" category wit a dual-core chip.

Cowon extends its PMP line with Z2 Plenue

Believe it or don't, there's still plenty of people out there who just want a little flexible media playing in their mobile device, and at least six or seven of them haven't already bought an iPod Touch. For that market, Cowon makes some stylish and acoustically sound products, which they've lately been loading with Android. The latest is the Z2 Plenue, and no, we don't know what "Plenue" means, either. The device is on sale in South Korea now, but probably won't make it outside of Asia for a few months at the very least.

Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 5-inch and 3.6-inch confirmed for the UK

If you're not into the whole "smartphone" scene but still want a media player with more brains than you can shake an iPod Touch at, you're in luck (at least if you live in the United Kingdom). Samsung has officially announced the new Galaxy Wi-Fi in that market, an Android-based PMP cousin to the Galaxy line of phones and tablets. A 5-inch version is on sale now, while a smaller 3.65-inch version will make its way to retailers soon.

Cowon’s Android D3 Plenue PMP packs T-DMB and HDMI

Cowon has outed its latest PMP, and as was rumored earlier in the year, the new Cowon D3 Plenue runs Android 2.1. Fronted by a 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA touchscreen, the D3 Plenue has WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1, an HDMI port and a T-DMB digital TV tuner. It also has a huge list of codec support and, we're guessing, lives up to Cowon's tradition of audiophile-quality sound. Three versions will be on offer, in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities (with a microSD card slot if you want to add more) but there's no word on pricing or release dates at this stage.

Samsung Froyo-based Galaxy Player PMP due at CES 2011

Samsung is planning on bringing a PMP-only version of its Galaxy S smartphone to CES 2011, with the 4-inch media-player having roughly the same specifications as the phone aside from no cellular connectivity. According to Samsung Hub, the Samsung Galaxy Player YP-GB1 runs Android 2.2 Froyo on a Super LCD display, and has WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0. There's also T-DMB, SoundAlive audio-enhancing DSP and a 3.2-megapixel rear camera, along with a front-facing camera for video calls. It also gets Android Market access, despite not having 3G, along with Samsung's own appstore, and there's a microSD card slot and GPS. We're guessing there'll be more details, such as pricing, early next year. [via Gizmodo]
