Samsung re-revealed its Galaxy Player line of Wi-Fi-only Android devices in New York last night and we were on hand to check them out. The numbers correspond directly to screen sizes, meaning Samsung is releasing 4-inch and 5-inch Android handsets to compete with the iPod Touch. The units on hand were still running an older version of TouchWiz, still with the iPhone-like square buttons and no motion gestures, but they did the job well enough. Both units are nearly identical. They both run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and come with 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that can hold up to 32GB of additional storage. Both have 3.2MP rear cameras and VGA front cameras, though the 5.0 has an LED flash as well. If you’re looking for a $250-$400 Android player for music, media, and apps at home, these appear to do the trick.
