Samsung Electronics has added more colour to its portfolio of digital audio devices with the release of the new YP-T7 MP3 player. The device features a so-called colour super-twist nematic liquid crystal display, which rivals the performance of thin-film transistor LCDs and costs less to make. Somehow, that has not translated into lower prices for the YP-T7. Its 256-megabyte ($1,389), 512MB ($1,680) and 1GB ($1,680) versions cost about the same as but carry fewer songs than Apple's 4GB and 6GB iPod mini MP3 players. Still, there is plenty to like with the YP-T7 devices - available in blue, black, silver and green. Its six-line, 65,000 colour monitor allows users to play a variety of digital content, jpeg images and text files. It also supports Ogg Vorbis, an open-source audio compression format that can compress music files smaller than the ubiquitous MP3 format.
