Samsung and Roxio work over Napster Players

Samsung Electronics is working with Roxio to develop a line of portable audio players that will carry the brand names of both Samsung and Roxio´s Napster service.

The showcased Samsung Napster YP-910 Player includes a 20GB hard disk drive, according to the user manual published by the FCC. The capacity is enough space to store around 5,000 average-length MP3 files. It measures 108 millimeters by 70 millimeters by 20 millimeters, that is near to competing players´ data, but it weighs 60 grams only.

Other features that worth mentioning are support for not MP3 only, but Windows Media Audio files as well, a USB port, and an FM radio and an FM transmitter, which means you can listen to songs wirelessly through an FM radio. It also includes a rechargable battery that provides enough power for up to 10 hours of use, and a recording function that can be used to record from the built-in FM radio or an external device, such as a CD player, to an MP3 file, according to the manual.
