Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 5.0 iPod Touch Rival Down To £100

The Galaxy Wi-Fi 5.0, Samsung's alternative to the Apple iPod Touch, has dropped in price to under £100 including delivery from House of Fraser, almost a quarter less than the next cheapest offer at £130 from Amazon.

It is to the Samsung Galaxy Note what the iPod Touch is to the iPhone. It features a 5-inch 800x480 pixel capacitive display, a single core Samsung Hummingbird Cortex A8 system on chip clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, 8GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, a 2500mAh battery (for up to 60 hours worth of audio or eight hours video), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, FM radio, two speakers, Android 2.2 Froyo with Samsung's Touchwiz interface on top, a mini HDMI port, Thinkoffice office suite, a 3.2-megapixel rear camera with flash and a VGA front-facing webcam.

At 11.9mm, it is a tad thicker than the Galaxy Note and the player has not only been rooted but work is already afoot to get Ice Cream Sandwich to run on it.

A 32GB Apple iPod Touch costs £220 while you can get a 32GB microSD card from £17, which means that a 40GB Galaxy Wi-Fi 5.0 can be had from £117.

You will be able to make phone calls via Wi-Fi on Skype with 60 minutes costing £8 (without SMS though).
