If you aren’t all that into the iPod scene but have been looking for something that is going to give you some bang for your buck, you might want to take a gander at the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 3.6. This is not a phone, although does look very similar to the all the Galaxy S line of devices, it is a personal Media Player. The device does sport Android and the goodies that are available for it. Inside you find a 1GHz OMAP processor, nothing like the big boys are playing with right now, but should provide plenty of power for gaming and media viewing. It features a minuscule set of 2MP cameras front and back. They come in two variations, a 16GB and a 32Gb. Only difference is on board memory.
Although this is designed as a PMP, there are a lot of benefits that can be had from having one of these around. The device does contain GPS, so navigation is possible with it, and Bluetooth for all your music needs. What I think many people look past when they see a device like this, is its potential. How many services are available in the market for WiFi calling? Google voice comes to mind right off the top of my head. I am half tempted to get one of these and set my daughter up with a Google voice number to run on it. It would give her the iPod Touch that she desires so badly, with the functionality of Android and a phone while at home and at friends houses. Seriously, how many friends do you know that don’t have WiFi set up in their home. I wouldn’t dare forget to mention the fact that no contract would be needed, nor would a data plan. This could be my saving grace for my 10 year old with out breaking the bank. Just tossing out some ideas on why this should probably be on the top your Christmas wish list as great learning device for future Android junkies.
