Emperor iPod and the Samsung Challenge
Mobile device companies are lining up for their take on mobile music players. PodTech’s Michael Johnson reports on some of the contenders.
Reporter’s Notes: Almost every device I’ve seen seems to have been influenced by the iPod in its button design, like the Chocolate phone, and the above-mentioned Samsung K5. Nokia looks like they’re going for fashion and functionality with their new lines. I’m not sure which phone I’d like to get, but my little flip phone is starting to get a complex; it doesn’t feel smart or pretty.
