Samsung YP-K5 music player with built-in speaker

Samsung YP-K5

There is an abundance of speaker accessories for digital audio players, but in many situations the bulk, cost, and power can be excessive: few listeners at work can afford to buy or carry a speaker set for the office only to turn down the volume for coworkers. At least one manufacturer has addressed the cost issue, but now the Samsung YP-K5 could make it trivially easy to carry a speaker set with you that should offer just enough volume for the workplace. Currently available only in Korea, the new player hides an actual speaker behind a minimalist black exterior and can slide it out for those times when your player serves as a desk radio. More information and a full photo after the jump.

Beyond this work-friendly exterior, the YP-K5 contains as much as 4GB of flash memory and has a "Digital Natural Sound Engine" that claims to produce fuller sound. There is no word on a potential appearance in North America, though the presence of many Samsung players here could see the YP-K5 arriving within months.
