Samsung announces pricing and availability for Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Players in the US – iPod Touch killers?

samsung galaxy tab 8.9

We hear about new 10-inch tablets and Android smartphones every day, but Samsung has something different for us this time. Yesterday afternoon, Samsung officially announced the pricing and availability for three devices that we have been awaiting for some months now in the US. These are the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 and the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0.

These are all solid carrier-free options for the American market. Many believe that a 10-inch form factor is not convenient, as it is not as portable as one might prefer. On the other hand, we have the Galaxy Players, which are basically your typical Android devices, except phoneless. This is the first major company to bring the iPod Touch competition on a significant scale, and these should be great devices for those looking for a media device without the hassles of data plans.

Let’s take a closer look at these bad boys:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

This is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1′s little brother. It comes with all the power and aesthetics that the 10-inch Honeycomb tablet packs, but with a slightly more portable form factor and even better specs. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 measures 8.9 inches diagonally and joins its predecessor as one of the thinnest and lightest tablets around.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 sports a 1 GHz dual-core T250S processor, 1 GB of RAM, a WXGA TFT display (1280×800 resolution), Gorilla Glass, a 3 MP rear-faciong camera, and a 2 MP front-facing camera.

If you want to get your hands on one of these you have just one decision to make and that’s storage size. The 16 GB version will cost $469, while 32 GB will run you $569. Both will be available for purchase on October 2nd, but are available for pre-order right now.

Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0

Both media devices are actually quite similar. The only two differences are that one measures 4-inches, while the other measures 5-inches, and the 5-inch version comes with a whopping 2,500 mAh battery (4-inch device has 1,200 mAh). Other than that, both devices come with a 1 GHz hummingbird processor, Android 2.3.5, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, 8 GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot (supporting cards of up to 32 GB).

Definitely not the most amazing specs we have heard of in 2011. We must remember, though, that these devices do not come with phone capabilities. This should improve battery life and performance significantly.

Those thinking of getting an iPod Touch soon should seriously consider these. The larger screens should make this much more enticing for media and games. If you happen to be an Android fan, this will be a no-brainer.

If you want one of these Galaxy Players, you can make them yours for $229 for the Galaxy Player 4.0, and $269 for the Galaxy Player 5.0. They will both be available for purchase on October 16, and pre-orders started today, September 27th.

Wrap-Up

It was definitely time to start seeing smaller Honeycomb tablets popping out. There is also the Acer Iconia Tab A100, or the upcoming Archos G9 tablets, but when it comes to design, it is a tall order to beat these Samsung devices.

Due to the success of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 is bound to sell briskly. What about those Galaxy Players, though? Do you think there is a good market for them?

While many of us would prefer these over the very popular iPod Touch, Apple has its name well rooted in the minds of Americans. Do you think that the mainstream consumer would choose one of the Galaxy Players over an Apple media device? Who is going out to get one of these three gadgets?

    iPod touch got no competition, idiots.

      and i wanna add i watched terra nova on fox and i have to say

      its complete junk, man whata waste of time….

    • Ann Monis

      I was once like you. Hopefully soon enough you will see, that you do not need all those products.

      Thing is when Apple releases their iTunes Music (over-the-air service) it will slowly kill off many iPod products, seeing there will be no real use for them. True many people will just want something to listen to music, but that is why they have the nano. As for the iPad, as much as I dislike it, it is here to stay.

      Only thing I dislike about iTunes Music (over-the-air-service) you need to be actually connected to the internet if I remember correctly. Google did the smart thing, they found a way to store music in a cloud / phone while not using any space on the phone and not having to be constantly connected to the internet.

      As for the Galaxy Tab 8.9, if they want to compete against the iPod touch or take away its market share, they better price it at the same price as the iPod touch (i.e $249). Plus at that price it could actually cut into the new craze of netbooks.

    • CactusCat

      Jim, you’re the idiot here. You’ve personally lined Darth Jobs pockets with tons of your money. But more importantly, you’re a total boring person. There’s no other reason for you to be trolling on the Android sites except for the mere fact that NOTHING is going on in the Apple realm. You’re bored out of your mind, so nothing better than to see what is going on in the other guys yard. Guess what? We’ve ALWAYS got stuff going on. So from here on out, when you feed that need to troll, simply bend over as far as you can. Then put your head up your ass and jump as hard as you can. With luck, you’ll simply disappear!!!

      • ihatefanboys

        yup, disappear, or at the very least suffocate….lol

    • ihatefanboys

      yea the iphone 5 will be a masterpiece (one word by the way, not 2) ….a master piece of crap. only an a$$hole would spend that much money on something only marginally better than what came out a year ago. An android phone, in contrast, nearly doubles the features and specs it offers users each year….so whos the a$$hole now ?

    • ihatefanboys

      also i just remembered that the iphone, ipod touch, and the ipad are basically iphones, they all have no phone service, theyre just slightly different sizes….lol

    • Fred Park

      cool story bro

    Sign me up for 5.0 finally a good android mp3 player I have a galaxy s now be he needs a older brother can’t wait to buy I’m so hyped for this

  • S

    Why the hell Apple is not blocking this in US?
    Did they resolve patent dispute?

    When Samsung will make Apple bankrupt, and they have
    control over all major components of tablet,
    will all the moronic Apple haters be happy?.

    • ihatefanboys

      while im not entirely sure thats english, i WILL be happy when Apple goes bankrupt, and google buys it, and sells off the entire company and assimilates anything of value into android, which will be just about nothing….

  • THIS IS FRAGMENTATION

    PROOF THAT SAMSUNG IS WORKING ON EVEN MORE ANDROID FRAGMENTATION.
    KEEP IT UP.

    • kazahani

      Do you even remember what the hell you are talking about at this point?

  • kwills88

    Samsung should have really use those 3 buttons that their player has instead of a hard home button on their galaxy s phone that kinda made it look like the iPhone

    • ihatefanboys

      i say this alot on the forums, but ill repeat it for you, just because a phone is rectangular and has a button in the middle of the phone below the screen does not make it look like an iphone. if that was the case, half the phones ever made look like an iphone including my G2… besides the fact that the galaxy S looks nothing even remotely like an iphone, besides the fact that its rectangular and has a button….i hate samsung mobile, but even ill admit its better than the iphone, is sexier than an iphone, its bigger and more advanced than an iphone….so in conclusion, it looks nothing like an iphone…got it ?

      • kwills88

        To us we can clearly see it doesn’t look like the iPhone, but to “other” they will be retarded enough to ask if that’s an iPhone “the european version”…just saying they should have just went with the 3 captive touch buttons like their player.

  • http://droidsamurai.blogspot.com DroidSamurai

    Do the Galaxy Players have a mic? If yes, coupling it with Skype/Google Voice, plus a $45 per month Clearwire 4G plan, we get one of the cheapest path to a 4G smartphone.

    • kazahani

      Ive been waiting for this to happen for two years now.

  • Kev

    Anyone thinking about buing the galaxy player 5.0 dont. Take it from me. I bought player 5.0 back in may and wow the touch screen is unresponsive. You have to turn the screen off twice to get a touch response.also app conpatibility is kinda weird, some apps just refuse to work on 5.0. Youre better off buying the old 7 in than the 5

    • ihatefanboys

      ughhh, just because you didnt have the brains to return a defective device does not mean the whole line is defective…does anyone ever return defects and not keep them and go on the intenet to complain about it ? to me its just defective people with defective brains keeping defective tech..

      then again it is a samsung

      • Kev

        No this a widely reported problem especially here in korea visit any galaxy player 5.0 support site. When did i say i didnt return it?? I returned it got a refund added ₩80,000 to buy the 7inch model why do you think i promoted the 7in for??? Read between the lines. (typed this on my galaxy tab)

  • uknowme

    It’s nice to see some competition for the itouch myself crowd. I hope they do ok. I have never seen the need, since my phone already does everything this can do.

    • ihatefanboys

      Good point…..why keep two devices on you when it can all be stored on your phone or streamed from the cloud…i know there will be some that claim to need a dedicated device to store all their music, but i hav to say, if someone has more than 50 songs on any music device its rediculous, no one listens to more than 50 particular tracks on any given day…..people that NEED 8gigs or more for music need to seriously consider the reality, first off no one knows 10,000 or more songs that well to hav to need them close at hand, second off, no one, except the unemployed loser still living at home with the folks, has that much time to listen to music.

  • Donald

    WOW wish these players where out a year ago. I hate apple and wanted something similar so i had to get the ZUNE… Don’t get me wrong its great but damn this would have been 10X better.

    To Ihatefanboys: I work 11 hours a day and listen to 6 hours of music. 50 songs are not going to cut it. I have two play lists 90′s and Now collection. I listen to them depending on the day and delete as i play if i don’t like them. I went from 5GB to 4.7 and counting. My phone works perfectly fine but i would rather use that as a phone then a music player since it sucks down the battery. 3HRS tops when streaming. I like the theory of using one device but the phone does not last as long as the zune.

    • ihatefanboys

      wow, thats some job…almost 50% listening to music. actually doesnt sound much like a job, unless your job is listening to music, or working on your tan.

  • mrjlwilliams

    I got this tablet the other day, as bestbuy already sells it.

    • Muslim muslim muslim

      best buy? wow, take care buddy there are lots of criminals, mostly black guys patrolling there.
      You better avoid bb and shop at target.

  • Steve505

    I love Android, but realistically, this device will have a difficult time competing with the iPod touch.

    Android smartphones are better than the iPhone, but someone buying a wifi-only device is probably buying it for games.

    iOS has better games than Android, which is why I don’t think very many people will buy this.

    • matt

      i agree, i have a evo and bought an iPod touch because it has better games and i could easily get games on the iPod touch then my evo. I’m not biased to either side. i like apple and android both.

  • Ibrahim

    Is it 3G enabled? If not, when will it be?

  • wow

    You already know therefore considerably when it comes to this subject, made me in my view believe it from a lot of varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t involved unless it is something to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs great. All the time care for it up!

      i agree, i have a evo and bought an iPod touch because it has better games and i could easily get games on the iPod touch then my evo. I’m not biased to either side. i like apple and android both.
