iPod owners are about to experience what it’s like to feel envious of another portable media player. And it’ll be Samsung’s YP-CP3 PMP that’ll be responsible for triggering that condition otherwise known as the green eyed monster. As well as being a great piece of multimedia eye candy, with a sizeable 400 x 240 3-inch touchscreen, it comes bundled with that crucial, all important SD card slot to expand its storage (and this is about the time when iPod owners should begin to feel those pangs of jealousy).
As well as MP3, WMV, MPEG4 and FLAC support, Samsung’s PMP packs FM radio, a voice recorder and features an easy to use joystick which should provide a better navigational experience than the diamond shaped touch sensitive interface of the YP-Q1 and YP-Q2. To make it even more covetable, circulating rumours say there will be a camera on board too.
Previous devices sprouting from Samsung’s PMP range have been reasonable in the price department, so with any luck the latest model will follow suit and offer a two digit price tag. It’s due out in June and that’s about as much as we can tell you for the time being – you’ll know more as soon as we do.[via Tech Fresh]
