I’ve been waiting for Samsung to bring this media player in the Philippines since it was launched in Korea several months back. I’m referring to the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5 which is a 5-inch media player ready to take Apple’s almighty iPod Touch. The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5 obviously runs on Android OS (hopefully it’s not later than Froyo 2.2). It has both the standard Google mobile apps which includes Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube and GTalk. Running along side are Samsung’s own apps which can be accessed via the Samsung Hub.
The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi features a 5-inch LCD full touchscreen display. It is also loaded with Samsung’s All Share app which lets you connect the device onto a supported Samsung HDTV. To ensure that you’ll have a nice listening experience, the Galaxy S WiFi 5 also feature SoundAlive technology and 1.3w Stereo Speaker. Battery life of the device is said be something around 60 hours of audio and eight hours of video plus storage options of 8 or 16GB on-board memory and support for microSD card. You also don’t need to worry about performance since the device is equipped with a 1GHz processor. Other features of the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5 include Samsung’s Social Hub and video and voice call over Wi-Fi.
In other words, this device is pretty much like your usual Samsung smartphone minus the data module which allows you to send text and make phone calls over mobile data lines. The device would fit those who don’t want a bigger screen display for their portable device.
The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5 is currently being offered on pre-order by Samsung. It’s available for the promo price of Php 12,990.00 if you pre-order online. Samsung is also giving away an Urban Ears Headphone to go with the Galaxy S WiFi 5. You can then pick up your device come Sunday, August 21, 2011 at the Fashion Walk, in Greenbelt 5 between 8am to 8pm.
