CNET First Look
Samsung YP-K3The Samsung YP-K3 MP3 player may not be a Nano killer, but it's definitely a solid choice for those who want a simple, sexy player that's not too hard on the wallet.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Jasmine France associate editor for CNET.com and I'm here today with the Samsung K3. Now this is actually a modified version of the YPK5 which we saw a few months ago. That was the one that had the speaker that kind of slides out and props up. So this is basically kind of taking the speaker off and making it a lot thinner. This thing is really thin. I think it's actually a fraction thinner than the Nano if you can believe it. It's got this really nice like shiny face going on. This is the cherry red version. It also comes in kind of an apple green and black. Red as you can see looks really nice and then you have these touch sensitive controls that light up as you activate them. So they glow you know blue or the top ones are red. Really kind of nice graphical interface as you go through. It's really sleek, really light, it's got a lot of features as FM radio, has voice recording, music playback and look at photos. Unlike the Nano the K3 doesn't come in 8 gigabytes just yet. But it is available in 2 gigabyte and 4 gigabyte capacities and it's very competitively priced. You can find the 2 gigabyte for about a hundred and twenty nine and the four for about a hundred and seventy nine, which considering the features that you get, is a pretty good deal. If you're looking for really sleek, slick looking player with great sound quality, this is a definite option for you. I'm Jasmine France and this has been the Samsung K3. ^M00:01:15 [ Music ]
