Samsung launch YP-U3 flash MP3 player

samsung_yp_u3_mp3_player.jpgSamsung has announced its YP-U3 flash-based MP3 music player – a successor to its U2 player that we looked at last year. We’ve known about it for a month or so now, but it’s hitting shelves around about now.

Adding itself to the mini-player market made popular by the iPod Shuffe, it measures just 25.4mm high and weighs 22.8g. It comes in five colours: black, white, pink, green and blue and with blue LED lights, and features touch sensitive controls, a matching colour earphone reel and buds, and an inbuilt retractable USB plug.
