Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0

CNET rating: 3 stars out of 5 (Good)

The good: The Galaxy Player 5 offers most of the capabilities of Samsung's popular Android smartphones on a large, 5-inch screen.

The bad: Either a 7-inch tablet or an on-contract Android smartphone would be more useful and potentially less expensive. Parents should know there are no safeguards included to restrict access to age-inappropriate content.

The cost: $239.00 to $255.00

The bottom line: Samsung delivers Android's answer to the iPod Touch at a time when you can spend less for Android's answer to the iPad.
