While we are still waiting for Samsung to officially announce the Yp-MB2 portable media player that we have seen and heard of countless times, they were showing off an entirely different Android PM today at IFA. Lost mostly to the buzz surrounding the Galaxy Tab, the Samsung Galaxy Player 50 is an Android 2.1 device featuring a 3.2-inch screen, WiFi, and 8GB or 16GB of internal storage. A microSD slot allows for expandable memory up to 32GB.
The Galaxy Player 50 will feature DivX support, come with ThinkFree office bundled into the software, and provide access to Google services and the Android Market. Not too shabby if you are looking for a secondary media device, though no iteration of Android or UI skin has quite made music and video playback on Android its strong suit. The Galaxy Player 50 will be available in Europe this October for 229 Euros for the 8 gig version and 299 Euros for the 16 gig.
