Samsung Galaxy WiFi 3.6 Hits UK Market In November

Remember last month when we caught a glimpse of what looked like Samsung’s take on the iPod touch, a Galaxy-series Android that had no cellular radio, using WiFi alone to get online? That was the Galaxy S WiFi 3.6, and Samsung’s just revealed its plans for introducing the handset, along with a larger five-inch version.

This announcement drops the “S”, calling the pair the Galaxy WiFi 3.6 and Galaxy WiFi 5.0. Obviously, like the iPod touch, these devices are capable of far more than just media playback, but that doesn’t keep Samsung from playing-up the pair’s audio performance, including “SoundAlive” software to act as kind of real-time dynamic EQ.

Both Galaxy WiFis will have 1GHz Texas Instruments processors, and come with Android Gingerbread. The only notable difference between the pair is their measurements, whether you want something pocket-sized or would like to flirt with a handset starting to encroach on tablet territory.

The Galaxy WiFi 5.0 is already available to customers in the UK, and the Galaxy WiFi 3.6 will be joining it next month. Prices for an 8GB 5.0 start at what works out to about $300, or $340 for the 16GB. The WiFi 3.6 will be more like $230 for 8GB and $265 for 16GB.
