Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 3.6 launches

Just as Apple has the iPod touch for access to the apps and media without the phone contract, Samsung has the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 3.6, which does much the same for lovers of Android. In fact, the mobile-like device does everything except calling. Although you can do that too if you box clever.

It looks like the Galaxy S and behaves like one in the main, running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and powered by a fairly meaty 1GHz OMAP processor, able to access the Android Market and use pretty much all of the apps on offer there. How? Making use of the device's Wi-Fi connection, that's how. It also has a 3.6-inch HVGA touch-screen, along with a two-megapixel camera with LED flash. OK, that last bit doesn't quite match up with Samsung's latest smartphones, but this doesn't cost anywhere near as much as one of those to be fair.

The media player on-board handles most of the key audio and video formats and as a nice bonus, you can use an app-based workaround to make calls on the WiFi 3.6 too. Check out something like Google Talk or Skype as Android apps. In terms of storage, you get a choice of 8GB or 16GB, with the option to increase via a microSD card. Price depends on that storage, with the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 3.6 selling for £149 and £169 respectively when it lands in October.
