The Samsung YP-K5 is a personal MP3 player that is available with 2 GB or 4 GB memory. The player is lightweight and portable, and comes with a touchscreen, FM radio receiver and built-in speakers. The speakers slide out from the player and allow others to hear the music being played like a mini boom box. The player is also equipped with a pair of bass-enhanced earbuds for personal listening. The Samsung YP-K5 features a built-in battery that cannot be replaced, but should be charged frequently. When the battery is fully charged, the player can play up to 30 hours of music.
