For those who recall, Samsung announced the Galaxy S WiFi 3.6 at IFA last year, essentially as a Galaxy S without the phone functionality. Fast forward to today, and we’re now hearing that it will be launching in the US. Featuring what we now call low-end specs, the PMP features a 3.6-inch LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 480, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 2MP camera on the back with a VGA shooter up front, 1500mAh battery and a microSD card slot for expandable storage.
We’re going to assume that the PMP runs Android 2.3 or lower, with little to no hope of Android 4.0. The PMP market is mostly dominated by the iPod Touch in the US, so Samsung will have to be competitive in order for success. Also taking tablets like the Kindle Fire into account, the PMP will need to be priced at around $100 to even have presence here. We’ll have to see how Samsung handles it, but expect it in the US soon. Who would buy the Galaxy S WiFi 3.6? Do PMPs still have a place in the current market? Let us know in the comments!
