The Samsung YP-T10 is supposedly the Apple iPod Nano killer. Design-wise, it sure gives the Nano a run for its money. The YP-T10 is one fine looker. It sports a lightweight, clean, and sleek design with aluminum accents. The back-lit, touch sensitive navigational control doesn’t even appear until you boot on the player. However, the buzz surrounding the player is its cute animated menu system, which features “Sammy” the dog. Every menu page is vibrant, seemingly geared towards the young at heart. The only downside that is holding back the YP-T10 is that it only supports MP3 and WMA files. Additionally, video support feels more like an after-thought, supporting MPEG-4 and WMV @ 30 FPS.

Specs:
* 2″ QVGA (240 x 320 pixel) screen
* Bluetooth 2.0
* 3D sound with DNSe support
* USB 2.0
* 4GB ($129) and 8GB ($200)
* FM tuner
* Voice recording
* Video playback: SVI, WMV @ 30 fps
* Audio playback: MP3, WMA
* Supports TXT and JPEG viewing
* Battery life: 15 hours audio; 4 hours video
* Dimensions: 3.8 x 1.6 x 0.3 inches
* Weight: 1.5 ounces

Good:
+ lightweight, excellent design
+ screen is nice and bright
+ “drag and drop” supported for easy file transfer
+ FM radio is nice
+ excellent user interface. Sammy is cute.
+ Bluetooth allows up to two headsets to be connected (listen with a friend).
+ decent battery life

Bad:
– lack luster file support
– too sensitive controls – a little ‘too touchy’?
– some may prefer more ‘tactile’ buttons
– due to lack of file support, converting your video files can be irritating
– no podcast support

The Samsung YP-T10 is a gorgeous MP3 player hands down. However, audiophiles that demand a plethora of file support should probably look elsewhere. For the rest of us that only listen to MP3s and no other obscure audio files…give the YP-10 a look.

The player comes in black, red, white, green, and purple in either 2 or 4GB. $129.99 via Amazon (4GB).

    I got YP-T10 (2GB) white.
    It’s really easy to use by touth pad button and Slim & compact design is also good.
    Most of basic features (FM Radio/Text,image viewer/Sound Q’ty) go well as it is.
    Bluetooth also give a good connection with cellular phone. (They can exchange phone numbers).
    One of very useful things is that I can use my AC adaptor (of my cellular phone) for charging T10’s battery by connection with TTL standard 24pin slot.
    When I am out of PC conditions, it’s very comfortable for me to charge them.
    It was Needed upgrade new firmware downloading from samsung website.
    In addition, the third firmware will be available at the end of this March (it can support to run OGG,AAC files and add new games.)
    I could change a variety of new wall paper screen.( The dog is dancing well?)
    But, 2″QVGA LCD is not good enough to watch the movies.( I do not watch it.)
    Moreover,I think it’s a weird when I turn on the power button, I have to take it more 3seconds continuously (it’s so long time).
    In conclusion, it’s a useful one with good price.

    Anyway, now I expect new firmware and that will be a good achievement.
