Samsung to introduce hard-disk MP3 player

Samsung Electronics took advantage of the CeBIT Asia exhibition held here this week to show off two prototypes of new gadgets that the company plans to release in the coming months, including an MP3 player with a 10G-byte hard disk and a voice recorder with a built-in digital camera.

The Yepp YP-900 is the first MP3 player from Samsung to incorporate a hard disk drive, according to Simon Chang, Yepp product marketing manager at Samsung.

Packing a 1.8-inch hard disk with a storage capacity of 10G bytes, the YP-900 also includes an FM radio, a USB 2.0 port, the ability to play WMA files and a voice recording feature that allows recordings to be encoded in MP3 format.

The YP-900 will be available early next year, most likely during February or March, at a retail price of around US$399, Chang said.

The Voice Yepp VY-H700 is a slim voice recorder that offers an MP3 playback function and includes a built-in 0.3-megapixel digital camera. Three models of the VY-H700 are available, offering either 32M bytes, 64M bytes or 128M bytes of memory. With 128M bytes of memory, users can record 74 hours of voice when using the lowest-quality recording mode or 6 hours and 12 minutes of voice using the highest-quality recording mode, according to Samsung.

The VY-H700 will be available later this year at a price between $150 and $200, Chang said.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
