Galaxy Player not coming to the US?

Post by lespaul2510 »

From what I've been reading as of late, it seems that the Galaxy Player won't be coming to the US...what a pity.

It will.... eventually. What I've been reading suggests late summer or fall for it to land in NA.

I'm praying; PC Mag and Cnet seem to doubt it; but I'm gonna keep looking into it.

I'm jealous! I wanted to order one but couldn't... Woot doesn't ship to Canada. Their next offering was a Optoma Pico pocket projector which I also couldn't order :x

It's here and has Gingerbread 2.3.5 (2.3.6 for Korea nows) in stead of the 2.2.2 on the Woot/European version.

Ha, ha! OK - you got me :oops:

I wish they'd start shipping these things to the hinterland north of the 49th... I gave my father the Dell Streak that I bought last week; actually tempted to buy another. Great piece of equipment - beautifully made and a stunning screen.

You can find them at your local Microcenter.

Unfortunately, Samsung is about a year late. But Im definitely going to get one. The only question now is 4" or 5"?

Hey MPlant. Do you know anybody that lives in the USA? Couldn't you ask them to purchase it and mail it to you?

heh, heh - I'm starting to get rev'd up about the Sony Z series. These should make it north of the 49th and seem more interesting than the Galaxy players anyway (I have a Samsung Focus WP7 phone already).

I had the great pleasure of trying a Galaxy 5" Player today at Bestbuy. I am definitely getting one shortly after the holidays. Saying I was impressed was an understatement. Archos should take some notes from Samsung.
