Samsung 5-inch Galaxy Player gets $270 Best Buy price leak

Samsung 5in Galaxy Player 8GB price escapes

Best Buy's mobile app inadvertently gave away possible pricing for the Galaxy Player 5. Also known as the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5.0 elsewhere, the five-inch, 8GB Android player is shown costing $270. The price puts it well above a similar iPod touch, although it has a much larger display, a higher-resolution three-megapixel camera, real GPS, FM radio, and a microSDHC card slot.

Neither Best Buy nor Samsung has confirmed the pricing. The device's presence would still line up with official plans for a spring launch. Just the 8GB capacity will be available, but a four-inch Galaxy Player 4 is also on tap that should come closer to the $230 mark of the iPod.

Both are effectively versions of the Galaxy S without the phone and share the same version of Android 2.2 with Samsung's TouchWiz interface on top. [via Engadget]
