Samsung’s IceTouch: Funkiest Player of 2010?

icetouch Samsung’s IceTouch: Funkiest Player of 2010?

Samsung just announced one of its latest players, the IceTouch. And we’re not gonna lie, it kind of looks like a giant home pregnancy test of some kind.

The player (which will make an appearance at CES in Vegas, where we will surely mock it in person) features a unique transparent 2″ AMOLED touch display with some sort of glass/plastic injected casing, 16GB of storage, and Samsung’s touchwhiz sweep interface. It also supports a large number of A/V codecs, including the new lossless MP3hd.

There’s a reason this is the worlds first PMP with a transparent display, because it’s ridiculous. I’m sorry Samsung, I don’t need to be looking at my feet through the display. I just don’t.

No word yet on pricing or release dates.

Oh yes, it’s that time of the year again. Manufacturers spend months planning and invest a ridiculous sum of money into these 4 days. It’s one of the few times where nerds from across the globe can come together and geek out in the real world without fear of being laughed or pointed at. I am of course talking about CES, which is happening this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. We’re heading off to Vegas in search of the latest in portable audio tech and will of course bring our findings to you, right here.

See you in Vegas!
