Last research I did, the closest thing you could get an iPhone without buying a phone plan but still getting the Wi-Fi connectivity was the iPod touch. Is there an equivalent device in the Android world ? – if so, what is it and what do you think of it compared to the iPod touch ?

    Only Samsung Galaxy Player and Cowon products are well known for Android based music player.

    If you read through the reviews of these products,they are regarded(especially Samsung Galaxy Player)not intended or in a mood to compete with iPod.Samsung Galaxy Player's audio quality is not good and build quality is comparable to budget phone(plastic).

    The Samsung Galaxy Player is the closest in caliber to the iPod Touch. Sony offers, or at least announced early this year, their android version of the Walkman. Polaroid has their version, as well as Philips and other generic brands. The Galaxy Player is of good quality with super-amoled screens in sizes of 3.6, 4.2, and 5 inches, 8-32GB storage (possibly 64GB), Wi-Fi capabilities, Play Store market, and other features that are found on their cell phones, minus the cell phone calling features. Aside from the different operating systems and what you would expect from either system, it all boils down to preferences. Pricing is similar, but having size options will cater to a broader audience, though most that would go with an android PMP already have their android phones, so it would be redundant, and if it is used more for music and videos, there are very cheap video mp3 players. User experience and preferences are the key deciding factors, just as it is for anything else one would buy.
