When does a player finally become a contender to the iPod? Is it when speaker docks start showing up for it? If so, the Samsung YP-Z5 player has hit the big leagues.
This dock/speaker can be powered on the go with 3 AA batteries, or an AC adapter if you're the stay-at-home type. The design looks like an iPod speaker dock, but it's black to match the black finish of the YP-Z5 black.
Available August 16th from the UK for £59.99 ($108), but should get to be around $99 when it jumps over the Atlantic officially.
