Summary: Slightly larger, but thinner, than the original iPod nano , Samung’s YP-K3 enjoys the same ‘I want one’ kudos. It’s stylish and sleek, and its backlit screen is a thing of beauty. But further comparison with the nano is less flattering for the K3.
Summary: Samsung’s YP-K5 scored Stuff brownie points when it arrived in our office last winter for one main reason: it was original. Sure, the slide-out speaker was gimmicky, but it was something new in a world of Nano clones, and for that we were grateful. Now Samsung has followed it up with perhaps the least surprising move in consumer electronics. It’s removed the speaker from its cult hero, and launched the resulting wafer-thin player as the YP-K3.
