So we unboxed the chocolate first, and the guys at Gizmodo unboxed the new YP-K5 MP3 Mini Boombox from Samsung first. Up until now we’ve only seen crappy low-res shots of the unit, but thanks to Brian at the Gizzer, we’ve now got some hi-res ones to drool over… and a video too (after the break). Overall it sounds like he’s enjoying the YP-K5 quite a bit. His only major complaint seems to be the bulkiness of the device. And also, the built-in radio uses the headphone cord as an external antenna? Is that really necessary?
The verdict: Awesome mini boom box, innovative design, great alarm clock, but only if you can get over the chubby form factor. Gizmodo Hearts the K5.
The Samsung YP-K5 will be available September 10th, and will run you $210 for the 2 gig and $260 for the 4 gig. Check out the YouTube video (complete with rockin’ music) after the break.
