Samsung to Use Anroid to Take-On iPod Touch

Posted by at 3:32 pm on August 2, 2010

Samsung is about to release  what may be    the first true competitor to the iPod touch to use Android. Listed at South Korea’s Daum store, the YP-MB2 would have the same features as the Galaxy S but targeted at MP3 players. The player would center on the same large fou-inch Super AMOLED screen and 1GHz processor but would  only use   Wi-Fi   to get online.

The MB2 will use Android 2.1 with Samsung’s customized TouchWiz   interface layered on top. Built-in storage  will be  32GB, and the Korean model will get DMB over-the-air TV tuning.   GPS would remain intact and could give the player an edge when navigating with offline apps.

In Korea, the MB2 should ship August 11. It hasn’t been formally unveiled but is likely to reach other countries.
