Most of our reports deal with advanced multideia players, the kind that have impressive touchscreens and top-notch features that combine wifi, GPS and huge storage capacities, but the low-end market is still there, producing new colorful devices, specially made for those who seek for pure music instead of complicated interfaces. Samsung’s DoReMi U5 is one of them, housing 4 lines OLED screen, along with 2/4/8GB of internal memory, FM tuner, built-in mic and battery that delivers up to 18 hours of audio playback. No hidden catch, no strings attached, just a simple USB thumb machine to hook and listen.
Update1: The U5 is now officially available for US residents, priced at $39.99.
Update2: May 6 2009 – Apparently, the U5 will have a new version in the coming weeks, that includes an integrated fitness program, to keep your calories on the safe side while listening to the band you like. Unfortunately, we have no other details, but we’re following the news to bring them for you ASAP.
