Samsung Galaxy Player 5 Priced at $269.99

Samsung had launched the Samsung Galaxy S Player 4.0 and 5.0 in the beginning of May, but they hadn’t announced any pricing details.

Today, the price of the 8 GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy Player 5 was revealed through the Best Buy Mobile app.

The Galaxy Player 5 is priced at $269.99 for the 8 GB version. It is exactly identical to the original Galaxy S, except that it doesn’t support any calling features and doesn’t offer EDGE/3G. It also has a bigger 5 inch S-LCD display and comes with 2 cameras – a 3.2 MP primary camera and a VGA camera for video conferencing. It also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.

It comes with Android 2.2 Froyo, but will be updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It will also offer support for Android Market.

There is also the 4 inch version available – the Galaxy Player 4, which will likely be priced lower.

With the Galaxy Player, Samsung will compete directly with the iPod Touch. It will probably be available soon now.
