Samsung Preparing iPod Touch Competitor

Drawing upon skills spent on designing its successful Galaxy series of Android phones, Samsung appears to be working on a new portable media player that easily smacks Apple's latest iPod Touch when it comes to features – at least, if our anonymous tipster is right.



Running Android 4.0.4, the 5.8” YP-GP1 is essentially a large smartphone without the phone functionality – or, better yet, a tablet with a smaller-than-average screen. As can be read in the image above, the GP1 packs in lots of goodies. Standouts include a generous 1GB of memory, a 3-megapixel camera on the back and a 0.3-megapixel one on the front, a MicroSD slot (something Apple still does not offer on any of its iDevices), FM Radio, GPS and Samsung's long-established TouchWiz interface sitting atop the Android OS.

Google's Play Store should be accessible, and the device surely uses WiFi to connect to the net – that or there may come available a 4G-equipped variation for anywhere-internet, although we don't know for sure yet. In any case, Samsung is expected to reveal more information about the YP-GP1 at the upcoming IFA2012 in Berlin. Stay tuned. (Via VR-Zone)
