Android, pimp my PMP
On the positive side, you connect the Galaxy Player to a computer using a Micro USB rather than some strange Korean cable, and both USB port and the 3.5mm audio jack are well placed, on the top of the device.
Simple, effective sound tweaking tech
The usual Android Henu, Home and Back buttons sit below the screen, the middle one a physical button, the other two touch-sensitive. Volume aside, everything is managed using the capacitive multi-touch screen, which is both fluid and responsive.
The Galaxy Player has 8GB of built-in storage with 1GB of that available for downloaded applications. Or rather it was before my Galaxy crashed after switching the USB Debugging feature on. At that point, the 1GB vanished, never to reappear. Under the battery cover is a Micro SD card slot good for another 32GB of - please note - unified storage.
As I said, what I have here is a pre-production model so hopefully that accounts for this problem - and for the device forgetting my Wi-Fi security code, and changing the wallpaper and desktop arrangement back to the default every time I turned it off.

What happened to.....
....decent capacity music players ?
I have a Creative Zen Vision M 60gb music player.
What happened to the 'do one thing, do it well' devices, rather than trying to get one thing to be average at lots ?
I am in intrigued by Cowons big 160gig player, but that is about all there is on the market right now.
If this Samsung f is the future, then we will end up paying for a lot of 'stuff' that is really just not needed.....
The ability to use Winamp on this device is tantalizing. Winamp has a lot of the things the reviewer found irritating, as well as sync over wifi, radio, etc.
wanna try it!
well, nice player! One of the first I would say, there will be better, more efficient and slim, more faster and more beautiful)) Personally I think that this device might beat iPod touch on several fronts. As to be more precise it has micro-SD slot for extending inner memory, you don’t need to use iTunes to download any music contents on your pmp, and very simple and convenient usage of Android Market which definitely will lover consumers to buying it, as well as GPS modile and FM-radio. Though defeating Apple stuff seems very difficult))
Orange San Francisco is £89.99 in Argos.
My mp3 player died last week, so guess what I'm treating myself to? Pick-up tomorrow.
The icon is for Samsung's pricing department.
Wow! you utterly convinced me with a whole series of well reasoned arguments that it's a bad buy, but then award it 65% ? From the write-up given surely it's in 35%-45% territory.
