Samsung to Launch U3 Music Player

Samsung to Launch U3 Music Player

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is about to launch a digital music player with an FM radio receiver that supports the RDS (radio data system) data broadcasting system used on many radio stations in Europe.

The U3 is about the same size as a pack of chewing gum and has its own USB (Universal Serial Bus) connector, so doesn't need a cable to connect to a PC. It will be available in black, white, blue, pink and green, and in three capacities: 1G byte, 2G bytes and 4G bytes.

Support for RDS means the player can capture and display information about the radio station on its 4-line OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screen. The device can also play MP3, Windows Media Audio, Ogg Vorbis and ASF audio files.

The players will be available globally later this month and the 1G-, 2G- and 4G-byte models will cost US$79, $99 and $149 respectively. Samsung said the internal rechargeable battery will provide up to 15 hours' playing time.

The devices measure 25 millimeters by 80 mm by 11 mm and weigh 23 grams.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
