Samsung has launched what they claim to be the “World’s first Android MP3 Player. The device named Samsung Galaxy 50 has looks resembling that of Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphone. Of course there’s no way to make phone calls, but the focal point of this Android MP3 player is to offer enjoy music on-the-go, play videos and do much more than what the rest of the MP3 player offers–all this at an affordable price.
Because of what the Galaxy 50 has to offer, it has already been claimed as an iPod touch competitor — and is available for pre-order at a reasonable price in some of the leading online stores like Amazon (UK only).
