Like an increasing number of portable media players, Samsung's P3 has a touchscreen. It doesn't feel nearly as sensitive as Apple's iPod Touch's screen, though, and scrolling through long lists can be quite frustrating. It has haptic...

The P2 did great guns for its manufacturer, allying a nice design with a touch screen and quality audio. Its successor is here, the P3, a direct descendent of the previous model. But there’s plenty of competition out there.Brushed aluminium, glass...

Packing a lot into a little space is always a noble quest for a manufacturer, but one that can lead to double-duty controls and secret handshakes to access it all. The touch interface and even the few hard buttons are not always as intuitive as Id...

The YP-P3 a slick little MP3 player. Colors are bright and vivid. Video displays at 800 X 600 and requires no converting to be able to use. Touch screen menus are a breeze to navigate, and the vibrating feedback is a nice touch. The ability to use...

Samsung has made many products over the years, and they seem to stretch back into the early dawn of man. Okay, maybe not quite that long, but let’s say somewhere in the 20th century they’ve made things from computers to phones, mp3 players...

Samsung has crafted a fine player in the YP-P3, which features a responsive (if kitschy) touchscreen interface, excellent use of Bluetooth, and strong format support. Even better, the P3’s price tag matches that of the iPod nano ($149 for 8GB,...

I'm impressed on how Samsung took their old YP-P2 player - an good introduction into the touch media player realm for them, and redesigned it into something really amazing. The P3 has a colourful interface, or should I say "desk space". The widgets...

Samsung’s last blockbuster was the P2. It was a hot topic in our forum and a player that we put on our Top 5 Players of 2008 list. With that, you can imagine the P3 is a highly anticipated device for current P2 fans and possibly some other-brand...

Imagine a Samsung P2 with the GUI from the Omnia phone and better codec support, and you have the P3. Thats not really a massive leap forward, though, and while the UI looks better than the P2s, it suffers from many of the same basic problems in...
