Lets Play: Galaxy Player 5.0

As thin as the 8.9 Tab it also debuted today, Samsung's new Player measures a sleek 8.6mm and weighs just 6/4.2 ounces each.  

The 4" and 5" Galaxy Player LCD (800 X 480) touchscreens are like the Galaxy S II cellphone but without the cell - just a purely pocketable "entertainment experience," say Samsung. 

But Player still offers the best of Android, running 2.3.5, Gingerbread, WiFi,front and rear cameras for Skype chats and Bluetooth, 8GB memory with microSD slot (up to 32GB) and voice recorder.

For music lovers the Galaxy's support MP3, FM Radio and stereo speakers and 3.5mm ear jack.

Format wise, it supports MPEG4  and 720p HD Video playback and supports mini USB.

Players also have a streamlined user interface and Samsung's Media Hub content service, boasting more than 5,000 movie and TV titles like Fast Five, Horrible Bosses and Green Lantern.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
