"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.

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.
