Samsung Nexus - A Great Alternative

By: Mike Singh

The Samsung Nexus is voted as a wonderful alternative from the other satellite radios receivers, targeted for the casual MP3 listener, whose main purpose is to replay recorded and personal content. While most other MP3 manufacturers are trying to perfect the MP3 player by adding disk space or integrating video, Samsung is integrating satellite radio. With the Samsung Nexus 25 or Samsung Nexus 50, a person can listen to satellite radio on the go, while still having the ability to listen to favorite songs from personal music collections. It does not have to have live reception of satellite signal, but needs to be plugged into a home dock or the optional car kit to receive a live XM signal. It is half the price of the Pioneer Inno and Samsung Helix, which has live on-the-go satellite radio signal reception. Which of course, all explains why instead of focusing on the radio market – it is focusing on the Digital Audio Player market with major metropolitan markets.

The Samsung Nexus 25 stores 25 hours of XM content and digital music files, with playback of MP3, WMA, and stored XM content. It offers the ability to listen to any favorite XM programming live on a portable device, and record up to 25 hours of XM programming for listening anytime. It comes with a home kit or a home/car kit, and can be connected through the USB 2.0 port. It can connect the device to store the favorite songs with the 512MB memory or use all the space for the XM programming. And next is the Samsung Nexus 50, giving the consumer twice the disk space as the Samsung Nexus 25 by upping the space to 1GB. This gives the opportunity to store up to 50 hours of XM programming, or plug the device into the computer and store songs along with the XM content. The Samsung Nexus 50 can be purchased soon in stores or online for a price around $299.99.

This line of Samsung Nexus XM/MP3 players would be a great investment for somebody who can't decide between getting XM radio or an MP3 player. If you are unhappy with the XM radio and just want to store music, simply cancel your XM subscription and you are good to go. If you are unhappy with the MP3 capabilities and just want to listen to XM radio, you can buy an FM transmitter and listen to the XM content while driving your vehicle. Or you can mix and match the MP3 music with satellite talk shows. The world is full of choices, and with the marketing field as open as it is in regard to MP3s – researching the information available is a necessity.
