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.
