Samsung will be showing off the Galaxy Player – an iPod touch competitor – at this year’s CES. The device will have the Android FroYo OS, front and rear-facing cameras, a 1GHz processor and HD video playback. With so many similar features to the iPod, the yet to be revealed price point may be a deciding factor. In other news, Amazon.com says the Kindle 3s is the all-time best seller on Amazon.com. The eReader succeeded despite competition from Apple’s iPad with its attractive price tag of $139. Now these sales figures are good news for Amazon, but they have still lost 15% of the eReader market this year . And finally, The GOP House of Representatives is the first to allow electronic devices on the floor. While the ban has been lifted, members are not allowed to talk on their phones and can only use the devices for “official business.” Will Twitter timestamps be used to incriminate those who abuse the new policy?
