Touch screen mp3 that can access Android market?

Basically looking for an Android based ipod touch around 4GB.  It's for my son and I don't want to cough up the bucks for an actual ipod.  Not at his age at least.  Needs to be able to play music, videos, as well as download games.  Any ideas?

I dont know of to many specific MP3 players based on android. Only one I can think of is the Creative Zen Touch 2. Best Buy does not carry this so you will have to look at other places. One other large online store has it in a 8gb version for 69.99 or 16gb for 89.99. Otherwise you would probably need to look at small form android tablets.

Samsung has the Galaxy Player 5, which is an Android media player with access to the Google Play (Android Market) store. I'm sure there are others, as well. To be honest, almost any android phone would work. I intended on using my Epic 4G as a media player when I upgraded phones... but it suffered an untimely death.

I also know of some people buying Cell Phones and using them strictly as a multimedia device without activating the unit. (Wifi)

 

And you could also dial 911 in an emergency too .

If the 9 year old likes Angry Birds and Music, definently the Samsung Galaxy Music Player. Just to let you know the Android Market may contain adult content. When setting up the Google Play Store, you may password protect his account so he can only download apps for his age.

To be honest what I would recommend for a 9 year old would be a tablet.

 

It isn't realistic anymore to try and say that your nine year old shouldn't have an mp3 player etc..

 

However, that depends on how your 9 year old is going to use it.

 

For a straight up music player I would look to the San Disk Clip Sport Go.  They will not be able to play games or watch videos.  For that you would actualy need to go towards an iPod

 

If you have an Amazon account you may want to look at the Amazon Fire Tablet.  They come really packed with things to do.

 

You can watch video, read books, play games, listen to music, etc...
