Samsung releases Galaxy Player 50

The recent launch from Samsung's kitty is the Galaxy Player 50, which relies on the same hardware support employed in the Galaxy family.

It is believed to appear exactly the replica rival for iPod Touch and is based on Android 2.1 instead of Froyo. This hints that the Flash compatibility will be restricted till Flash Lite rather than Flash Player 10.1.

The iPod Touch on other hand sports a better screen resolution, on a large and superior screen with a front camera for video conference.

A few other specs apart from the rest are; Wi-Fi connectivity, support for DiVX and H.264 plus the whole Google Apps suite.
