In this world of Shuffles, Zen Stones and mini Sonys it's easy to forget Samsung's YP line of diminutive players.This latest version, the U3, has the familiar 1in OLED display but now packs up to a Nano-catching 4GB of capacity, with less endowed 1GB and 2GB models tagging along behind.Its predecessors, the YP-U1 and YP-U2, both had USB-related gimmicks, with a fold down jack on the U1 and a light-up USB cap on the U2. Not to be outdone by its forebears, the U3 combines both, with a light-up cap covering a retractable USB jack. Classy.Audiophiles will note the support for OGG Vorbis files but we're eyeing up the 15-hour battery life and built-in FM radio with RDS. Pocket Xfm nirvana, here we come.
