We’d long known of Samsung’s plans to introduce an iPod Touch competitor – the Samsung Galaxy Player – to market, but they didn’t have anything official to show until CES where the 4-inch version for Korea was on hand. At Mobile World Congress, we were treated to a look at a 5 inch version that had the same internals of a Samsung Galaxy S sans 3G radios.

At that time, they had nothing to announce as far as availability in other regions, but Electronista has heard that the device will be coming to the United States. The only timeframe Samsung had to offer was Spring, but no specifics as far as early, mid, or late season.

Both models of the Galaxy Player will only have 8GB of internal storage, but it can be expanded by up to 32GB thanks to the inclusion of microSD card support. Pricing has yet to be announced. Take a look at our hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy Player here.
