Samsung takes aim at iPod touch with Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.0, 5.0

On our second spin through the Samsung booth, we noticed something we — in our excitement to see the Galaxy S II and Tab 10.1 — missed yesterday: two Wi-Fi only Galaxy S devices. Dubbed the Galaxy S 4.0 and 5.0, Samsung has set it sights on a popular smaller tablet-alternative, Apple’s iPod touch. Let’s go over the specs…

The smaller of the two, non-cellular Galaxy S models — the 4.0 — sports a 4-inch LCD TFT display, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front-facing VGA camera, 3.2 megapixel rear-facing camera with 720p video recording (no flash), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 1200 mAh battery, micro-SD card slot (with support for up to a 32 GB card), and Android 2.2.

The 4.0′s big brother — the 5.0 — boasts a 5-inch WVGA display with an 800 x 480-pixel resolution, 1GHz Humming bird processor, front-facing VGA camera, rear-facing 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2,500mAh battery, micro-SD card slot (support for 32GB cards), and Android 2.2.

Sammy was pretty cheeky when we asked about a price point for the new devices, but company reps were not shy about saying that it would be extremely competitive with the iPod touch. Expect to see the Galaxy S 4.0 and 5.0 in the coming months; until then, have a look at our hands on gallery and let us know what you think.
