Samsung should put a 3.3-inch AMOLED screen (480x272 resolution) multi-touch to their next player

Something better is always going to come along or be in the pipeline- I can't believe that comment from someone regretting buying a P3 and not waiting for a Zune.
Well, I can believe it because I read it, but it's just stupid..

ughh yeah but maybe on the slight chance that they decide that they want to benefit the consumers they might do drag and drop but 99% they likely won't and we have to use zune marketplace

Honestly, this looks like an iTouch with a Zune emblem on it: smooth interface that is really nice, but I've never loved the Zune sound quality, Granted, it is better than an iTouch's sound quality.

With the most recent 2.14 firmware upgrade, the P3's interface is smooth and kinetic enough for me and many others. The whole accelerometer and web browser and games gimmicks just don't fit me. The thing that will keep a lot of people from buying this is what dfkt said- ZMTP only compatibility.

If you think it looks like a touch w/a Zune emblem on it, let alone being a clone of an apple device, you just might need a better set of glasses. I have a Zune & a Touch, & I really fail to see 99% of all the comparisons you guys have made as having any merit. The only point I'll agree w/is the ZMTP fact, which I personally hate myself. But, to be honest, if you don't like the Zune software,... DON'T BUY THE DEVICE!!!

My point is, get the facts straight, or stay out of the convo. And, this isn't directed at 1 person, it's a generalized statement. You all hate on the iPod so much, yet criticize any other player that's coming to market. The S9, X1000, and P3 all get/got the same flac.

It's a new device that builds on the market standard of the moment. Let's see how it is when it gets released. until then, it's all good.

And as for Samsung needing to step up their game, I think they're doing fine. Anyone who thinks otherwise, go get an S9, or an iPod, or Creative, Sony, etc. Personally, I like the P3 better than the S9.

Sorry if my last comment was not good. I guess what I am trying to say is, with everybody talking about games and smoothness of the interface etc., it distracts what I think should be the first and foremost part of a PMP: sound, video, and pictures.

Zunes are good at what they do, and this may not even be that bad of a player. In fact, it may be a kick-ass one that I may get if the P3 keeps on taking forever.

yeh comparing the zunehd with the p3 is like comparing the p3 with the itouch, one is a pmp which just so happens to have a touchscreen, whilst the other is more of a touchscreen beast which just happens to play music as well. the touch is sorta on a different level, compare a p3 to an s9 yes, but i think the inclusion (and perhaps more of a focus on) games, apps, internet etc set the itouch/zune too far apart. its not like they just made the ipod classic with a touchscreen, they added fook loads more crap to it, which in turn took the price up by a hellofa a lot.

their 2 different sorts of devices imo

^ i know sound quality and basics are most important but most of the time it is the UI that attracts most of the market to a player these days.. if samsung wants to grab a significant portion of the market both the UI AND mp3, video basics have to be good to win~.

I don't believe people buy Cowons for their great UI- I know I didn't, but I knew they had great SQ. Similarly I knew the P3 would sound great before I bought it- its smooth UI and eye candy is just a bonus, really,
Re the title of this thread- Samsung doesn't need to do anything at all.

well Dreamnine, I kinda disagree, a smooth UI is kind of a must for me (which is why I am surprised that I had a P2...), but the SQ is also a very important factor...
