Napster 2.0 as announced earlier will launch October 29th. The Napster Player and Service could be a real competition for Apple's iPod.

The Napster branded Samsung YP-910GS comes fully packed with features. Some of them are accessories you have to buy for the iPod, like the FM Transmitter.

The Mercury News has a very positive review about the Napster MP3 player:
"However, to Samsung's credit, its new player isn't just another iPod copycat. It has a line-in jack so it can record by itself. It can tune into and record FM radio stations. And, with an included antenna, it can transmit FM signals, allowing its music to be picked up by any nearby radio, such as a car stereo." is taking orders for the Napster MP3 Player already. It will ship October 20th. The Samsung YP-910GS is selling for $359.84.

The Napster MP3 Player is also directly available at J&R Computer and Music World!.
