Samsung reveals Galaxy S WiFi 3.6 music player

Samsung has announced a new portable media player called the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 3.6. It follows after a long list of IFA 2011 announcements this morning from the South Korean company but doesn't fall into the smartphone or tablet category. Instead, it appears to simply be a 3.6-inch addition to Samsung's existing 4- and 5-inch Galaxy S Players.

Not Enough Devices? Here’s Why You Need More

Not Enough Devices? Here’s Why You Need More

I love a good smartphone. I work for Samsung, and I carry a Galaxy S II that I’ve been "testing" for an extended period of time. I use just about every feature on it. I listen to music. I navigate. I talk and text. I take pictures and video. I’ve even read books on it. I’m not pushing my product, I can hardly name a smartphone on the market that cannot do these things. But I just read Jon Pilon’s column on TheNextWeb.com about consolidating all of your gadgets. You know, because most people want to carry around only one gadget, instead of a half dozen. Right?

iPod touch 3G tipped for September: Data-only 3G radio

iPod touch 3G tipped for September: Data-only 3G radio

While we've been fielding rumors of iPhone 5's and iPad HD's of late, let's not forget the iPod touch, itself due for a refresh in September. Rumors regarding what the fifth-gen touch could offer have been thin on the ground so far, but Applespot.nl claims the PMP will, in fact, be the much-requested iPod touch 3G, adding a data-only cellular connection to the touchscreen media-player.

Sony MZ-RH1 Hi-MD Walkman faces axe (but MiniDisc lives on!)

Sony MZ-RH1 Hi-MD Walkman faces axe (but MiniDisc lives on!)

Goodbye, MiniDisc, we loved you. Well, perhaps not love, but at least a grudging regard. Unfortunately, grudging regards don't add up to sales, and Sony has decided to axe the MZ-RH1 MiniDisc Hi-MD Walkman in September this year. Worry not about your precious MiniDiscs themselves, however; those still using the format will have time to stock up.

iRiver P8 PMP breaks cover with slick interface and more

iRiver P8 PMP breaks cover with slick interface and more

iRiver has been around for a long time making some interesting PMPs and other devices for music and video fans to take with them wherever they go. One of the last items that we talked about from iRiver was the small T9 MP3 player back in May. The new product that has surfaced from iRiver is much more interesting than the low-end T9. The P8 has a big 5-inch touchscreen and a very slick interface with widgets and more that looks like it came from Cupertino.

Gadmei P83 PMP does 3D with no glasses on the cheap

Gadmei P83 PMP does 3D with no glasses on the cheap

I would have to say that this is one of the more interesting items that Brando has ever had on its website. Generally the company has cheesy USB gear that is of questionable value. This PMP, which looks more like a tablet, certainly won't beat out many of the more popular and well-known PMPs in most minds, but the thing is cool nonetheless. It’s called the Gadmei P83 3D PMP.

Bill Gates speaks: Yes to Zune, No to Microsoft CEO job

Dr. Evil impressions, Zune defensiveness and a willingness to give away $28bn dollars: can you blame us for liking Bill Gates? The Microsoft chairman has been talking to UK paper the Daily Mail, and while the focus is the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization which kicks off today, there's still plenty of time for gadget anecdotes and singing Travie McCoy's Billionaire.

Sony PS3 sales slowing; NGP needed ASAP

You love charts, we love charts, and Sony sure loves charts when they confirm PS3 sales were headed skyward in 2010.

Oversized iPod touch PMP/tablet hybrid tipped ahead of iPad 3

Steve Jobs may have dismissed 7-inch slates as "tweeners", but that doesn't mean the company isn't considering an oversized iPod touch according to the latest batch of rumors. Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims Apple is working on a "big iPod touch" with a screen size of around 5-inches, AppleInsider reports, likely with the same resolution as the current model and offering the same PMP UI rather than the iPad UI.
