Alongside availability of the Galaxy Tab 8.9, Samsung also announced the availability of the Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0: Samsung's iPod Touch competitors. Both will be for sale starting October 16 for $229 and $269. Both players use 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird SoCs running Android 2.3.5. The two modem-less players primarily differ in displays and dimensions, otherwise they seem pretty similar at a high level. More info later tonight!
