Samsung updates Galaxy Player 70 with new “Black Edition” variant
Well, that certaintly did not take very long: in less than a month after Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy Player 70 portable media player with VoIP capabilities for use on LG's U+ telecommunications network, out comes the Korean electronics giant with a new version of its Galaxy Player 70 for its domestic Korean market. And guess what the new version of this portable media player is called? Why, the Samsung Galaxy Player 70 "Black Edition", of course.
It sure seems that Samsung is on a roll with its Galaxy Player line of media players; in less than a month after it has struck up a deal with LG to sell its VoIP-capable Galaxy Player 70 device for use as Smart Home Phones on the latter's telecommunication networks, out comes the Korean electronics giant with yet another Galaxy Player-related piece of news for its domestic market. Apparently, word has it that Samsung has just introduced a new version of the Galaxy Player 70 portable media player for sale in Korea, and it comes in the form of the Galaxy Player 70 "Black Edition", which boasts a few features that are not present in the original Galaxy Player 70 portable media player.
According to a report published by Akihabara News, the new Galaxy Player 70 "Black Edition" will come preloaded with "several new educational services for Korean students", and this service apparently includes access to up to 5,000 free online courses. No detailed information about the aforementioned "educational service" was mentioned in the report, although we'd hazard a guess that the service will most likely consist of links to relevant reading material, or come in the form of e-textbooks to make it easier for Korean students to revise their work while on the move.
In addition, as its name suggests, the new Galaxy Player 70 "Black Edition" portable media player will be available in any colour users want it to be, as long as it is black. Lastly, Akihabara News has claimed in its report that the "Black Edition" version of the Galaxy Player 70 sports specifications that are identical to those that are already present in the current Galaxy Player 70; this includes the use of a 5-inch display, a preloaded Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, a rear-facing 3.2MP camera, as well as access to standard wireless connectivity features such as WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS.
No pricing for the Galaxy Player 70 "Black Edition" portable media player has been released by Samsung at this point of time.
