Samsung X830 & Mp3 Players

By: Matt Sharp

Bad Apples and Mucky Windows

The main reason most PC music players, and subsequently the personal Music Players that use the files, make everything so difficult is all to with business. It's their attempt to monopolise on your music collection. Have you noticed that when you install Windows Media-player or Apple itunes, the first thing it wants to do for you is convert your whole music archive into its own format.

For example, my whole music collection was in Mp3 format (the most universally accepted format by the way), I installed iTunes and without paying attention it converted my whole music archive into AAC format. What use is this to someone who doesn't have an iPod? Absolutely Nothing!

What really gripes me is this conversion has nothing to do with this type of file sounding better than any another, or that this music file uses less memory, in fact there are actually no real benefits for us, as the people who use the files, to have our music collection converted. The only person this benefits is Apple, because I now HAVE to use itunes to play my music and until now had to have an iPod to play these files.

So what's the answer when this happens to you?

There are two options here, one is to source a software converter that will change all your music back to Mp3, or to find a device that accepts you new monopolised file format, in the case of my example - this would be an iPod... is the penny beginning to drop yet?

Here's my universal alternative, Enter the Samsung X830. This mobile phone was designed by Samsung with music in mind. On the outside it is a very stylish device and will do all the things most Mp3 devices will do, The Jog wheel is similar to that of the iPod. But what's really clever is what's on the inside...

This mobile phone will play and work with you music collection no matter what format it is now, it will play the universal Mp3 format and all the monopolised file formats such as AAC (itunes/Apple) and WMA (media-player/windows). This gives you ultimate flexibility because you can play a mix of all the file formats on one device, also it has a simple to use transfer process, you can send your music to the phone from your PC using either lightning fast USB2 or Bluetooth.
