    "K5" is a stupid name; everyone will be calling it the "5K."


    It is a clever design, and they did manage to implement it well, but I would never use it.

    It is unique, but in it's "speakers-out-mode", it seems very awkward and cumbersome to hold if you are listening to music with it.

    Is it the best-looking competitor we've seen? Yes. Will it sell a lot? No.

    What, that thing costs $5,000? Show me the iPods! :D

    Look out fingerprints!


    Design isn't all that bad, but built-in speakers? Why?

    I like it a lot, but unless the speakers are bose quality, i find that feature pointless.

    I can't stand people playing loud music walking down the street, whether it be from a MP3-playing phone or whatever it is. Use headphones in public, it's obnoxious otherwise.

    Pssh... doesn't have half the sex-appeal that the five-year-old design of the iPod has.

    Oh yeah... and you get an A for the day. Amen.
