Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 Smart Player announced

A long name, but the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 Smart Player is actually short of one thing - the ability to make mobile phone calls.

Like the iPod touch, that's the selling point though. If the idea of a high-end Android smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S II appeals, but you really just want access to the apps rather and especially if you don't want a big calls and data contract hanging round your neck, this is possibly the device for you. Just make sure you're in a Wi-Fi zone when you want to use it though.

Looks-wise, it's not a million miles away from the phone-calling variant. It offers Android 2.2 for the operating system (which means access to Flash, you'll be pleased to read) and, as you might have guessed, there's full access to the Android Market via your Wi-Fi connection. You can even make calls on the device too if you're clever, just grab the Skype app and you're away.

Other than that, the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 Smart Player is good for media, playing and organising your video and music files, with multi-codec support to cover most formats. Downside? You don't get the AMOLED screen that trhe phone offers. Instead, you'll get a 'large, high-quality Super Clear LCD', which is four inches in size.

Look out for it in the second half of the year, pricing still to be confirmed.
