Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 unboxing

As a very nice looking PMP and MID, and the first real Android-based iPod touch competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 has been on our radar since back at Mobile World Congress.

I took advantage of an early and unexpected opportunity to snag one on a Woot sale earlier this month, and the device just recently arrived at my door. The review will be coming soon, but for now you can check out what's inside the box below the break.

Here is the front of the packing, which simply shows a picture of the device along with the Samsung and Galaxy brandings. While the box is styled much like Apple's standard boxes, it does feel noticeably cheaper, with the cardboard seeming soft and not rigid.

Still, the device was perfectly fine once I got it out of the box. As you can see, it also looks pretty plain. It even gets rid of the search button, opting for the bare minimum of buttons. This setup also allows the device to have a centered hardware home button.

Here is a shot of everything included in the box, minus the standard leaflets. The bundled headphones actually feel like they are of pretty good quality and include some sort of music control buttons. I hope they sound good because if they do, they will be a nice perk.

The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 finally made its way to the US a few weeks ago, so you can snag one right now if you are ready to hand over $270 dollars, or you can wait for our official review to see if it is really worth your money.

  • Already planning on it for the review, it looks like the player can handle .avi fine so far, which is at least one step above regular Android video playing.

  • Looks nice! I’ve already seen one for real and I’m wishing for one too. I wonder how much did you buy it.

  • It was around $169 I believe, which is nice considering the retail is about $250
