>> Hi I'm Jasmine France, Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com. I'm here today with the Samsung T10. Now this is a 4 GB player that comes in five different colors, purple, white, black, green and, red. All of them have this kind of sleek and shiny face with the brass metal backside. It cost $150 which is about average for a player with this many features. You're definitely paying a little bit for the designiness of it and the features and the kind of cool interface that they have on here. Now, these controls as you can see are not tactile buttons, you have this light-up control pad that you have to tap on to get through the menus and what not. Not everybody's gonna like this. It does take some precision to really get the results that you want. But it does give it a really stream line look. The one button we have on the side here is a hold and power switch. Hold switches are always important when you're dealing with the touch sensitive interface. Now, moving into the menu, you can see where Samsung spent a great deal of their time and not just by making these really fun. This Flash-based interface, it's called Sammy actually and that's just little dog that kind of takes you through the different interfaces, even holds a little album mark for you on the playback screen. This has a lot of features. You can view photos, video, MP3 and WMA, including protected WMA. It doesn't support a lot of audio format unfortunately. It does have Rhapsody DNA integration though, so you can transfer Rhapsody content including Rhapsody Channels. There's also an FM Radio should you want to listen to just your radio. Finally, there is the most unique feature and that's the Bluetooth integration. That's a stereo Bluetooth and that means you can connect it with stereo Bluetooth headphones and stereo Bluetooth speakers. Now, will eventually integrate it with Bluetooth phones as well, and you can answer calls using the built-in mic on the bottom. However, that this come in a feature for more update. As far as sound quality goes, it sounds solid, it's not the best sound in any MP3 player we've had, but for this player, we think that you're paying for the style and the fun and the features that come in it. So, it's definitely worth it if that's something that you're in to. I'm Jasmine France and this is the Samsung T10. ^M00:02:01 [ Music ]

The Samsung Array sticks to basic phone features, but the user-friendly design and satisfying performance outweigh the disappointing camera and Web browser.
If you can afford it and you can find a place for it in your gadget world, the Samsung Mondi should deliver a satisfying user experience.
Samsung's companion MP3 player for their Galaxy smartphones is plagued by a horrible user interface.
The Samsung Armani is one super sexy phone, but it falls short of perfection because of lackluster features and a tricky user interface.
Although they won't satisfy audiophiles and purists, we prefer the Soul by Ludacris SL300 headphones over the competition for their sexy light-up earpieces, supreme comfort, and street-savvy noise cancellation.
The Philips NP1100/37 lacks the bells and whistles of some other network digital audio players, but it should satisfy those looking for basic streaming on a budget.
Sleek and powerful, the Samsung Fascinate is another strong addition to Verizon's Android lineup. Its user interface won't appeal to everyone, particularly seasoned Android users, but it's a good smartphone for the masses.
The Samsung S3 Slim MP3 player is a solid option for budget-minded users with an eye for design and an ear for audio.
If you're looking for a small, practical MP3 player to throw in your gym bag, the Samsung U5 is a great option that won't break thebank.
Samsung T10 (4GB, black) Review
The good: The Samsung T10 features a sleek and stylish design with an engaging Flash-based interface. Rhapsody DNA is integrated for seamless subscription and Channel support, and the player offers a plethora of features: video and photo playback, a built-in FM tuner and voice recorder, and stereo Bluetooth functionality.
The bad: The touchpad of the Samsung T10 requires precision for desired results, and there's no elegant handling of podcasts. Video support is abbreviated, conversion is a pain, and audio support is limited to MP3 and WMA.
The bottom line: The Samsung T10 won't satisfy audio purists, but users who value lots of features, a fun interface, and a player that will turn heads should give it a look.
