[FUNNY] After 11 years, people are still trying to compete with the iPod
Our friends over at Zagg just posted an interesting post uncovering the supposedly new iPod Touch competitor from Samsung. I find this news somewhat hilarious not because I don’t like Samsung products (cause I do) and not because I’m such a big fan of Apple (although I am) but simply because people have been trying to beat the iPod since it’s release in late 2001 – yet not one has really been successful – and they are still trying.
Although I do feel the new device will resinate very well in the Android community, I absolutely do NOT feel it’s going to “take-over” and beat out the iPod touch. People simply love iTunes along with Apple devices and are used to it’s functionality. But again, I do feel a lot of those Android lovers and ones that currently own (and love) their Android phone will probably pick this device up.
So, what’s all the hype about?
- 3.6′ touch screen with resolution of 480×320
- Will run android 2.3
- Has Wi-Fi
- 1GHz single-core processor
- Rear 2 megapixel camera + front facing camera
- Access to Google Play story (access to tons of apps)
- Store music, videos, etc.
As you can see, this little device is looking like a pretty decent competitor to the iPod Touch giving the ability to enjoy a touch device without buying a phone (and I assume at an affordable price). Only time will tell but if I was a betting man, I’d bet this isn’t close to an iPod rival – hard to beat something that’s been #1 for over 11 years and running!
