Samsung’s sexy K3 DAP

There are some first-gen iPod Nano owners shouting “it’s a copy!” at the screen right now, and  know why.  Samsung’s K3 has the same mixture of sleek black and chrome, the same waifish profile and the same light weight.  And yet with it in my hand, it feels very different; the sharp edge of the chrome surround gives a sense of solidarity perhaps lacking in the Nano.  The screen, more oblong than square, looks better proportioned, and the electrostatic buttons sleek in their minimalism.  It’s a tenuous differentiation, and a subjective one certainly, but the K3 feels to me less toy-like.

Installation is a breezy affair, as well it should be, as long as you have the requisite XP SP2 and Windows Media Player 10 (or higher); in use the Media Studio software does a decent job of organising not only your K3 and PC libraries but also burning CDs, building playlists and editing ID3 tags.  The player itself supports mp3, WMA and PlaysForSure subscription tracks such as those from Napster and Yahoo!, but you’ll be looking in vain for AAC playback or, for that matter, Mac compatibility full-stop.
