Samsung's New Galaxy Player 5.8 Sits Between Galaxy Note And Galaxy Tab

Is there really room for even more sizes of portable Samsung devices? Clearly, that answer is "yes" if you're Samsung. The company has just launched the Galaxy Player 5.8, boasting a 5.8" (960x540) display. That up-sizes the Note by some margin, and makes the 4.8" screen on the Galaxy S III just look small. Android 4.0 is onboard as well, with the newest edition of TouchWiz. It's a media player at heart, not a phone, with 16/32GB of storage, a front-facing camera, microSD card slot, a 2,500mAh battery and a white or black casing. Otherwise, it looks mostly like a giant Galaxy Note, which is sort of hard to believe. Can't quite fit a 7" slate in your pocket? Is the Note just too small? As long as you don't need cellular capabilities, it looks like this thing hits all the sweet spots, and it should launch in time for back-to-school... at least in Samsung's homeland.

All this furor over Apple and Samsung has left me really wanting a Samsung device to show solidarity.

SIII? Perhaps. :3

This thing looks pretty nice though, I'd get it in a deeper color though. White is meh.

So pointless. I would rather carry around a 3.5" phone and 10" tablet at the same time.

Samsung will continue to push the bounds and try new sizes until it proves a single model as the golden child of tablet sizes.

The new tablet is an attempt to see how much market is left and how much farther tablet makers should be pushing. I can't imagine Sony adding a model along the lines of 5 in but unfolds to 10. Or slides or something of the sort.
