Philips Teams Up with Android to Bring PMP


The Philips GoGear Connect follows Samsung’s lead and ditches their own proprietary OS and snags up the Android OS for their latest personal media player. This Philips PMP could be rivaling the Samsung YP-MB2, which looks and runs like their Galaxy S smartphone, which of course lacks the voice-call capabilities. Philips has added some pretty appealing features to their GoGear Connect PMP.

Features of the Philips GoGear Connect include:

  • 3.2-inch media player as boasting Android 2.1
  • 16GB of internal storage space
  • battery is good for 5 hours of video playback (and 25 hours of audio)
  • FM radio tuner
  • Touchpanel
  • MicroSD expansion slot
  • GPS
  • Android 2.1 Marketplace

The GoGear Connect comes in two versions, both of which are available on Argos. The GoGear Connect 16GB is available for £199.99, while the 8GB GoGear Connect is available for £179.99. I wouldn’t expect this device to hit the states, but you never know.

I once served in the USMC from 02'-08' I purchased the G1 in 2008 and then watched the Android OS turn the mobile world upside down. I then got the Nexus One followed by the Samsung Vibrant. I also have the HD2 running Shubcraft CM6. I've been following the Android community for a while now and couldn't be happier doing anything else. "Go Green, get -C}[\][D[R[-][][D-"
