It’s starting to look like Samsung won’t stop until it has an Android product with every conceivable screen size. This week the company added the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 and Galaxy Player 4.2 to its line of portable media players.
Samsung already offered 4 and 5 inch models in the US and a few other sizes in other regions. That’s not even counting all of the company’s smartphones and tablets with screens ranging from 2.8 inches to 10.1 inches.
The Galaxy Player line of devices are basically what you get if you take an Android smartphone and strip away the phone calling and mobile data connectivity.
Both new media players run Google Android 2.3 software.
The Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 will have a starting price of $150, a 3.6 inch, 480 x 320 pixel display, 8GB of storage, and up to 6 hours of video playback time. It has a 2MP camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 3.0.
The larger Galaxy Player 4.2 has a 4.2 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display and provides up to 5 hours of video playback time. It’s expected to sell for $199, but the rest of the specifications are pretty much the same as those for its smaller sibling.
