To remain on the radar, the Samba 1000 is delightfully small, lightweight and supports most popular music formats, but most strikingly of all is its loud orange color tone. The eye-catching color along with its matchbox size gives the Samba 1000 a very sporty and fun appeal, which should go down well with youngsters. There is also a small screen with blue backlight up front, making navigation easy for just about anyone. Also, the rewind, forward, mode, volume up, volume down, and play/stop buttons are all located together for a very short learning curve. Moreover, there is a lanyard loop and a 3.5mm earphone jack located on top of the unit, giving users the option to parade around with this lightweight player around their necklines.
