Samsung has unveiled a new media player — Galaxy WiFi 3.6, during an event in Berlin, Germany.
As the name implies, the Samsung Galaxy WiFi 3.6 comprises a 3.6 inch TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen display featuring HVGA resolution. To keep things speedy enough, Samsung has added a 1 GHz processor in the personal media player as well.
What makes it really stand apart from the existing crowd is the inclusion of the latest version of the Google’s Android operating system, the Android Gingerbread v 2.3.
Other inclusions are also there that make this device a complete iPod killer or maybe more. Samsung has included a 2 megapixel camera on the back with an LED flash and a front facing VGA camera for video chat through VOIP.
The Samsung Galaxy WiFi 3.6 comes with 802.11n WiFi, accelerometer, compass, and a micro SD card slot which can take up to 32 GB cards on the top of internal memory of 8 GB or 16 GB, depending upon which version you are buying.
Samsung is looking forward to roll out the Galaxy WiFi 3.6 for sale in the UK in the month of October, with the 8 GB version priced at 149 Pounds or Rs 11,000 and the 16 GB version at 169 Pounds (Rs. 13,000) approximately. People from India can also make use of websites like ‘Shop Your Word’ and ‘20 North’ to import these devices as and when they are launched in October but obviously they will have to pay a premium for this.
