Samsung Electronics has announced the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 Smart Player, which offers most of the features of the Galaxy S smartphone without the mobile phone connection. It includes a 4-inch LCD display, a 1GHz processor, the Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’ operating system and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, giving access to Google Mobile Services and the Android Market. Although GSM and 3G calls aren’t possible, voice and video calling is available over WiFi. The device also supports DivX HD for high-definition video playback.
The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 will be available in the UK during the first half of 2011.
