The Samsung P3 is the company's first touch screen digital media player. It introduces an exciting new thin, sleek and stylish look for its users. The Samsung P3 enters the market as an iPod nano competitor.
Although almost identical in design, the Samsung P3 one-ups its predecessor with an aluminum casing, haptic feedback, integrated speaker, DNSe 3.0 sound enhancement technology, and customizable flash-based user interface with widgets.

It retains the same rich Bluetooth 2.1+EDR support and 3-inch 480 x 272 display of the P2, but features a slightly revamped design that gives it a cleaner, more streamlined look. It is available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and even 32GB. MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC, FLAC files are supported as audio files where as MPEG-4, WMV, H.264, AVI (DivX and XviD) files are supported as video files. Only 2.1" x 4.0" x 0.4" in size and weighing 3.4 ounces, the Samsung P3 is an easy to carry device.

The Samsung P3 comes preloaded with 7 colorful games, 2 of which can be played against another P3 user via Bluetooth. This cool device also supports FM radio and includes an address book, voice recorder and even a calculator. The player's non-removable lithium polymer battery is rated at 30 hours for audio and 5 hours for video. Actual runtime varies according to usage and other factors.

Samsung P3 comes with bundled earphones and is Bluetooth compatible. The FM radio is an added advantage.
