We hope you wear baggy pants, because you're going to want big pockets to carry Samsung's giant new jukebox.

Remember the Galaxy Player (or Galaxy S WiFi) we saw back at MWC? Sure you do, it basically strips out the 3G and calling functionality of a Galaxy S phone and leaves you with a Android 2.2 media player or shrunken tablet.

Hello there, Galaxy S without a SIM card slot, how are you today? Samsung's showing off its Korea-bound Galaxy Player at CES today and we've got to say, it's almost indistinguishable from the European Galaxy S handset.
