Samsung Galaxy S Player
Portable media player is based on the Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone

Yesterday all the talk at Mobile World Congress (MWC) was of 3D tablets and smartphones. Today, Samsung will reveal something more prosaic, but none the worse for that.

Its new Galaxy S Player, a multimedia portable without a phone. Think of it as a rival to the iPod Touch. 

Full details are expected from Samsung later today, but for now we know the Galaxy S Player uses the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) platform, a 4.3in AMOLED Plus screen, 8MP camera capable of shooting 1080p video, a second front-facing 2MP camera, wi-fi and dual-core Hummingbird processor.

Don't expect 3GS, smartphone technology or 3D, but if you want a straightforward music/video player take a look. Essentially it's a Samsung Galaxy S2 without GSM/3G radio.
