Samsung YP-K5 MP3 player
Samsung YP-K5 MP3 player : Samsung, announced its newest digital creation: the Samsung YP-K5, a lightweight MP3 player with heavyweight features including an innovative touch screen, FM radio receiver, and built-in speakers.

Now, Samsung's K5 lightweight MP3 player is kick-starting the trend to break out of this shell by enabling users to share their music experience with others. Samsung has combined their lauded MP3 players designs with those of a mini-boom box to create a unique listening experience. The Samsung K5 lightweight MP3 player offers a unique experience through its embedded speakers.|

Perfect for the active, hip and young lifestyle, the YP-K5 travels with you, allowing you to live your life in sound. The Samsung YP-K5 comes with earphones that boast innovative two-part ear buds that boost sound quality and provide the hardware to surround yourself with a powerful sound with enhanced bass tones. Enjoy the same acoustic experience that you would hear from your home stereo.
