Samsung has launched cool new MP3 player called the P3. Never one for particularly inventive names, Samsung has already picked up an award for the P3 – it was selected as a CES Innovations 2009 Design and Engineering Award winner.

The P3 has a 3-inch WQVGA LCD touchscreen, and gives haptic feedback when you navigate the EmoTure interface.

It's just 0.39 inches thick, but the P3 squeezes a 16:9 widescreen video player, studio-quality audio player, ultra-portable photo album, personal voice recorder, FM radio, and even a portable storage drive into one compact device.

Samsung says the P3 can also be paired with a Bluetooth TM enabled phone, allowing owners to use the built-in microphone to answer calls directly through the player.

The P3 will be available in the first half of 2009 in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB storage capacities.
