Or the P6 which is rumoured to be an implant the size of a grain of rice, with every song that's ever been recorded and every song that ever WILL be..It's when Sammy finally ditches Emodio.

I'm the only Samsung insider here and no information about a P4.
I only know the next new models but I can't tell you more for the moment.

You really shouldn't have to worry, as the P3 is great for the time being.

I'm worried for Samsung as their best device is a generation behind with a 3" LCD. The Cowon S9 and iriver SPINN, as well as the upcoming ZuneHD all have 3.3" OLED screens. The SPINN isn't much of a threat coming in only 4gb and 8gb versions, but S9s can be had with 32gb now and I have no doubt the ZuneHD will be avialable with 32gb as well. The S9 is getting wonderful user development too. Samsung? Are you paying attention?

The 32Gb version has been available for a while now in Europe...

The size of the screen is not the only thing you have to look at. The resolution too. With the same resolution with a smaller screen, the P3 is better its own way even if it is not OLED

@Olley
Its also priced in consideration of this. Samsung aren't particularly considered a luxury brand in the market like cowon and iriver are, so it makes sense that they would offer a cheaper alternative because people might not be willing to pay full cop and not get the prestige logo. Samsung are more in competition with sony walkman (as a brand), and I think you will note the the x1000 has a 3 inch screen. Also creative, but they dont offer a 3"+ touchscreen player.

Agreed. I think if Samsung were to release a bigger and better player it would be wiser to think of the P3 as a iPod Nano killer and the 'P4' as the device that takes on the Cowons and Sonys and Ipod Touch's. For the price, the P3 is a remarkably capable player...

I only have pictures and release dates and the design is not final for the moment.
2 models will be released and they belong to a new range (so new letter but can't tell you which one )
Some new features shared with mobiles phones as you know the 2 divisions merged at Samsung Korea

New letter eh? So what's been used already?
P3, Q2, S3, T10, U5, H, C, D, E, F, K, V, W, X, Y, Z....

Unless I missed some that leaves A, B, G, I, J, L, M, N, O, R.
I'm betting on A.

Wait till Olley finds out, he's gonna' get that credit card ready. Matter of fact, I need to prep myself. I want a 32gb P3, and the Zune HD as well. Gawd, I'm gonna' go broke!!!!

Unfortunately nothing really interesting. As there already are the Q2 and the P3, I don't know what is the target with the new products
