uses a proprietary connection cable

4 agree

Samsung's TouchWiz is still not up to par compared to competitors' interfaces, pretty laggy, nonsense widgets

not available in 16GB

2 agree

interface looks similar to the iPod Touch, yet can't be used in portrait and has a fixed number of screens

2 agree

Priced the same as the iPod Nano - 5th Generation, which actually records video

The Samsung R1 is a micro portable media player (PMP) released in late 2009 as a precursor to its weaker sibling, the R0. The R1 adds along nearly everything missing from its late-coming peer: a touchscreen display, audio recording, games, Bluetooth wireless technology, and a TV-Out port. Plus, it includes a Beat DJ feature that allows users to add either their own voice or space-themed sound effects to a song. It still lacks video recording, but like its counterpart, the R1 supports a wide-range of video formats, including DivX and MPEG4. Additional features include FM radio, SD/MMC memory expansion, and a text viewer.
