CES 2011 Samsung has announced the launch of its latest PMP - apparently the world's first Android powered MP3 player, according to the company, which appears to have missed Archos' Google OS offerings.

The Samsung Galaxy Player 50 has a 3.2in touchscreen, 2Mp camera and comes with either 8GB or 16GB of storage, expandable using Micro SD cards of up to 32GB.

Available from retailers such as Amazon and Play.com, the Samsung Galaxy 50 costs £149.
