Philips GoGear Connect 3.5 is an Android-powered media player

Philips unveiled a new version of its GoGear Connect media player. Powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread, GoGear Connect 3.5 comes with Wi-Fi connectivity, 720p HD video support, Philips’ FullSound and Surround for Movies technologies. In other words, it’s an Android smartphone without cellular radio, so you’ll be able to use most apps from the Android Market and even make calls with VoIP clients like Skype.

In related news, the Dutch giant also unveiled a series of “Philips Made for Android” headsets, which allow customization of controls, offering easy call and music management “enhanced by sound optimization and personalization capabilities” through the free Philips MyHeadset app…

The question is – does anyone really want an Android-powered media player? Honestly I don’t see Philips and any other maker of such products shipping those in volumes. What do you think?
