Samsung P3 Better than iTouch?
Samsung is showing off its new touchscreen media player, the P3. From the looks of i t, the P3 seems to be positioning itself as a challenger to the iPod Touch. Of course, offering the same features won’t be enough to knock Apple down from the top - they need something unique, and they just might have i t. We’ll have more for you after the jump. The Samsung P3 has a 3-inch WQVGA-TFT-LCD touchscreen that can display in portrait as well as 16:9 widescreen. I t’s 0.39 inches thick - a pretty skinny device. I t plays your music, media and, if that screenshot is any indication, i t’ll have applications and games. Sound familiar? Right - it sounds a lot like the iPod Touch. Fortunately, Samsung wisely added a unique feature. What’s that feature, you ask? Samsung is equipping the P3 with Bluetooth capability. Why? Well, for starters, you can pair the device with your Bluetooth-enabled phone, which then allows you to use the P3 to receive phone calls - you use your headphones and the built-in mic to talk. Bluetooth also opens the possibili ty for wireless headphones and other wireless accessories in the future. The P3 will debut sometime around July for an undetermined price. I t’ll come in a few different models - 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB. Via slashgear
