Samsung Yepp YP-55i MP3 Player Review

As an MP3 player, the Yepp YP-55i offers great sound, and a ton of extra functionality on top of that. The unit is solidly built around an aluminum chassis, and with 192MB storage, makes for one very cool little device

I bought this mp3 player some place else for about the same price. It is the smallest mp3 player I have seen so far. The best thing about this is that you can use it as a flash drive.
