Oh wow!!! I think I'll get the 5" screened one for flix & tunes - since the Galaxy Tab lacked the sound enhancements and EQ that I love so well from Samsung. Now I'm 200% glad I sold the tab - BOOYAA!!!

You missed the link to the 5.0 on the Best Buy website: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Samsung+...&skuId=2711058

There is no Samsung Canada insider here

But I can tell you Samsung Canada doesn't sell mp3 players anymore and that would be weird they reconsider their decision unless the Galaxy Players are really successful in the USA for example.

edit: Maybe a good news:

The last mp3 player available on the Canadian website was the P3

Wow. I expected them to be much more overpriced. The price is actually acceptable.

Perhaps we spoke too soon, the Best Buy pages for the galaxy players have been taken down.

Looks like a major pulldown is underway, and it may be thanks to Apple's lawsuit against Samsung for copying.

Dude, stop sweating it and just wait. Really, I want one of theses just as bad as everyone - but I refuse to stalk the players. If Samsung doesn't relaese it for us over in our country it's their loss. I'll just be patient and wait for the Cowon D3 V.2 instead, as Android should be perfectly implemented by them by then. Samsung isn't the only game in town.

If I'm the "dude" you are referring to, then please apologize. I could care less when the things show up or if they ever do. Right now though they are about the only interesting thing happening (or not?) in this market.

Not you Olley, just a person or so that really are counting on Samsung to do the right thing - and some of us know how (un)reliable they really can be.

TBH I don't think the pricing could be much higher on the 4.0 and still be acceptable. They removed the super AMOLED display and they do not have 2g/3g capabilities. Any higher and people will be considering a second phone (maybe with a 3g contract to supplement the wifi) as the multimedia device of choice. The 5.0 is a different story because of the larger screen and battery.

@The DarkSide

There's nothing wrong with keeping track of these devices on the forum. Consider it something I'm doing leisurely. For some of us, the chase is fun. I'm more curious than anything.

In all honesty, I had accidentally posted posts 48 and 49 in this thread and meant to post them in the "Where are these things" thread. I got my tabs confused. I'll be moving them after posting this.

To all concerned - please take no offense at my comments, as we're all one big happy mp3 player chasin' family!!!

As for the D3 V.2, that's my wishful thinking - as I'm hoping the next Cowon Android device does what the current model didn't, and that's GET IT RIGHT!!!

Ha, funny way to put it, TDS.

As far as I'm concerned, Samsung will release these in the US soon.
reasons:
-They went through the work of making the product page
-Said page has not been deleted, its just not mentioned anywhere
-BestBuy said they were "out of stock". I think this means they haven't been shipped to the US. yet.
-I don't know if anyone else checked, but the BestBuy said gave an ETA of 5/31/2011. thats pretty close.
happy hunting. I'm gonna be patient. I'm not in a hurry, I just want mine now.
not to change the topic, but what are you opinions on the 4" vs the 5" ?

The 5.0 in looks nice and has a large screen, play games... The camera also has flash, why doesn't the 4.0 have a flash?
