Samsung launches U3 direct USB jukebox

updated 10:45 am EDT, Mon June 18, 2007

Samsung U3

Samsung today revamped its MP3 player line with the U3, a sequel to its well-known U2 flash music player. The U3 is one of the largest-capacity players that can still plug directly into a USB port, synchronizing up to 4GB of MP3, OGG, or WMA tracks just by dragging and dropping files through the OS rather than custom software. Its diminutive size still manages 15 hours of battery life in part through a four-line OLED screen. FM radio tuning with RDS support for channel ID is supported as well as the by now obligatory voice recording for classes and meetings.

The company intends the U3 to be one of its most colorful players and ships in colors ranging from white to bright green and pink. All models should arrive before the end of June in the US with prices starting at $79 for 1GB and climbing to $99 for 2GB and $149 for the largest 4GB edition.
