Engadget Summary

Though this portable media player is $50 less than Apple's iPod touch, and offers a few novel features, — including the ability to control a cellphone over Bluetooth — for most people, it's still not a real alternative to the touch. That's mainly due to its screen, which is noticeably less sharp than the one on the touch. If you have a big music collection, the Galaxy Player's microSD card slot might make it worth considering, since adding a 32GB card to the 8GB Galaxy is considerably cheaper than buying a 32GB touch. Otherwise, the touch is a better deal, especially since you can get the 8GB version on Amazon for $187, putting the price difference between these two at just $37.
