Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi presentation and thinking out loud

The presentation of Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4 and 5 mini-tablets took place, the numbers in the names indicate the diagonal of the display. The hardest thing is positioning devices, it's like with netbooks that died in Bose - it's kind of like a laptop, only cheaper (the idea was like that). I don't want to be immodest, but at the time, I predicted that netbooks would eventually become laptops, and the market would heal as before. All is well, for many consumers it was the first portable computer, and for little money a person could understand whether he needed to deal with such a thing or not. True, a ten thousand netbook is one thing, a thirty thousand netbook is a little different.

About the same thing is happening with Android now, there is a huge public interest in the OS, and therefore manufacturers are experimenting with might and main, looking for a point where to direct the blow, price trends, since the crisis seems to have passed and the population has money for beads again. Let's say the iPad. If it had appeared at a time when offices were empty (did you remember?), and marketers were mastering panicles (and mortars), and who knows whether such a deep penetration into the bowels of consumer brains would have turned out. Now there is room for pampering, a wave of truly budget Android devices is on the way, they release books, tablets, players, navigators and God knows what else. Mini tablets? Why not? At Samsung, they are trying the market with a probe and waiting for where it shoots. Sales will show. If there is a positive trend, then, you know, the company will arrange a local armageddon for Dell and other few players in a narrow mini-tablet niche.

Yes, and what is a tablet, we still need to figure it out - nothing more than marketing, multiplied by fashion, powdered with talc of popularity.

Besides, for ordinary, traditional players, not very good times are coming. In the same Samsung, it seems to me, they may well reduce the line and stop experimenting with our smaller brothers - that is, there will be two or three inexpensive models, and the main efforts will be directed to mini-tablets. Almost like players, only they are mini-tablets.

Yes, and the language does not dare to call the Galaxy S 5 player - it really is something between the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the second Galaxy S (we are talking about a smartphone). The resolution of the five-inch display is 800 x 480 pixels, the processor frequency is 1 GHz, the front VGA camera, the rear camera is 3.2 MP, all kinds of codecs are supported, I tried to play both TV shows and movies, there are no problems. With audio, the story is the same, unlike the iPod Touch, it is possible to listen to both FLAC and OGG (and much more). And yes, there is a radio. A microphone on the case, a high-quality headset and a microSD memory card with a navigation program (in my opinion, this is Route 66). Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) are supported, there is 16 GB of memory plus a microSD slot. The four-inch model has the same display resolution, and the processor too, to access the memory card, you need to remove the battery cover. The characteristics are generally the same - except for the diagonal of the display and design. I have both devices in my hands, and I will try to prepare reviews next week, the soul lies more in the five-inch model, and I want to equip it with all the programs necessary for life, “fill in” the video, and so on. You know, the sweet moment of turning things out of the box into things for life (your life). There will be a range of accessories specifically for mini tablets.

Now attention - prices and availability - Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5 will be available in May, the recommended retail price is 12,990 rubles. The four-inch model should also hit the shelves in May, RRP 9,990 rubles.

The main question of journalists and consumers is why there is no 3G module here. For example, in the same Dell Streak, you can make calls, send SMS, and do whatever your heart desires. Can. But let's not forget that the Galaxy S Wi-Fi consumer is most likely a city dweller. He probably already has experience with many mobile devices, and in the arsenal there may be a phone with an operating system capable of turning into an access point trick. So are the iPhone and many Android smartphones. Yes, and many others. There are 3G routers, there are Yota “eggs”, there are many other things. After all, the pricing of mini-tablets is also not accidental, the price tags of Samsung smartphones were taken as a starting point.And, nevertheless, there is simply no clear answer to the question of who is the consumer of devices. Like, anyone. Maybe a phone user - the same Samsung Galaxy S, who does not want to waste battery power on reading, playing games, etc. Maybe this person wants to get acquainted with the capabilities of Android, paying ten or thirteen thousand rubles for it. Maybe one “android” is simply not enough for a person and he wants two. Maybe like a five-inch toy that fits in a jeans pocket and make an impulse purchase. In the end, a child will be able to play Angry Birds on Galaxy S Wi-Fi, but will not be able to accidentally send an SMS and buy the game for millions of millions of rubles. And then a court, a prison, a long road.

Рынок учит нас, что кто угодно - значит никто.

Рынок учит нас, что iPad вон вполне себе продается, и значит, у населения есть денежки.

Рынок, в конце концов, резиновый, и для Samsung важно попробовать, ведь вместе с Samsung G50 получается уже целая линейка мини-планшетов.

Характеристики устройств вы можете посмотреть вот здесь, про время работы и массы других особенностей - а главное, попытку приспособить Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5 под свои нужды (не знаю, какие) - читайте на следующей неделе. Начну с самой интересной для меня игрушки.

The market teaches us that anyone is nobody.

The market teaches us that the iPad sells quite well, which means that the population has money.

The market is a rubber one after all, and it's important for Samsung to give it a try, because with the Samsung G50 you get a whole line of mini-tablets.

You can check out the specs of the devices here, about the run time and a lot of other features - and most importantly, an attempt to adapt the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5 to your needs (I don't know what) - read next week. I'll start with the most interesting toy for me.
