Philips GoGear Connect 3 is a portable media player with Android

Aside from the new Android-ready speaker docks, Philips also announced a new GoGear media player. The GoGear Connect 3 is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread-based device with a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen and Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing its owners to expand its functionality with third-party apps. Also included with the GoGear Connect 3 is a Pandora-like app for discovering new music, as well as preloaded codecs to ensure all popular video formats can be played. Speaking of videos, Philips says its baby can handle 720p HD clips, which is nice (and kinda unexpected for a small media player).

Of course, the electronics giant made sure the sounds quality is on place. In that sense, GoGear Connect 5 features FullSound, Sound Personalization and Surround for Movies, delivering the “superior sound that the Philips GoGear range is renowned for.”

Finally, along with the players itself, users also get the PC software Philips Songbird, which is used for syncing music from your PC. Pricing was not announced…
