Canadian Corporate Information
After only a decade of growth since first entering the
Canadian market in 1987, Samsung Canada, headquartered in Mississauga,
Ontario, has emerged as the market leader. We are growing in Canada
by about 20% per year and continue to build a strong presence in every
market we enter. Operating as part of Samsung's Americas group, our
Canadian operations gain considerable competitive advantage from Samsung's
local Americas R&D, manufacturing, and technical support. Samsung Electronics
in Canada focuses on consumer electronics and information systems products.
Consumer electronics began in Canada in 1987, followed by IS in 1992.
The information sales division has grown 61% since 1992. Samsung has
introduced a wide range of IS products into the Canadian market, which
include hard disk drives, CD-ROM drives, printers, fax machines and
monitors enforcing its leading market position and fast year-over-year
growth with a strong local presence and reseller network to serve Canadian
consumers from coast to coast. Samsung is building a strong presence
in Canada as it has all over the world.
In the 1980's, we had tape players. In the 1990's we were
upgraded to the clear crisp sound of the portable CD player. Now in
the early 21st century they have all been demoted and almost eliminated
by the introduction of the MP3 player. But why?
With digital clarity and the ability of carrying large
amounts of your favorite songs in one small tidy package, the consumer
can shed the inconvenience and extra weight associated with carrying
numerous CD filled with songs that you don't actually want to listen
to. We all know that there are very few CDs on the market that people
want to listen to from start to finish, and with the introduction of
MP3 compression and CD ripping, the user can now carry only the songs
that they really want.
In addition, some or even most new MP3 players are entering
the market with FM radio receiving and voice recording capability. If
you are tired of the music you have on the MP3 player, you can switch
to your local radio broadcast till you upload some new media or if you
need to record a voice memo or even a small business conversation, won't
have to carry around a separate recorder.
The Samsung Yepp YP-780V MP3 player I will be reviewing
today encompasses all of these features and compresses them into such
a small size that you could easily fit two or even three of them into
