Samsung releasing some WiFi-only devices?

So it seems that the news coming out of the Mobile World Congress continues, with Samsung announcing some devices that – wait for it – aren’t technically mobiles.

Boy Genius Report has the scoop, but the nuts and bolts are these – Samsung has put out some devices called ‘Galaxy S’ but which are WiFi-only.

The smaller of the two – the Galaxy S 4.0 – has a 4″ LCD TFT display, 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, front and rear cameras, bluetooth and WiFi, a 1200mAh battery, and expandable micro-SD card slot. It runs Android 2.2 (FroYo) and, like other Samsung Androids, it has TouchWiz also.

The larger model – unimaginatively called the 5.0 – has a 5″ display with 800 x 480 resolution, and is otherwise the same as the 4.0 except it has a higher-res camera (5mp vs 3.2mp) and a 2500mAh battery.

It’s pretty clear from these specs that Samsung is taking clear aim at the iPod touch as a smaller, and popular, tablet-alternative.
