A range of new printers was also announced, the DLP-510 which is Samsungs latest colour laser printer, the SCX-6320F which is a new multi function device which will not only be able to print, copy, scan and fax, but it can also fax and scan straight to email. A range of new consumer level photo printers were also launched with the SPP-2040 being the top of the range model. These photo printers use dye sublimation on A6 paper, rather than ink which is still far more popular in photo printers.

For those of you that are interested in camcorders, Samsung launched a suite of new products here as well. Two of the models rely on 1GB of built in flash memory for storage and both record in MPEG4 format. The VP-X110L features a removable 350Kpixel lens body which Samsung envisages will be used to film extreme sport action. The third camcorder is a new addition to the DuoCam family and features a standard DV camcorder as well as a 5 Megapixel digital still camera in one body.

Six new MP3 players were also announced the YH-J70, YH-J50, YP-D1, YP-T8, YP-F1 and YP-W3. The first two models feature built in hard drives with the YH-J70 being able to play back MPEG4 video on its 1.8in LCD display. The YH-J70 offers 20 or 30GB storage and USB 2.0 interface.

The YH-J50 on the other hand has a smaller 1.5in LCD display and it will be available with a 5 or 6GB hard disk. Again it will be capable of playing back MPEG4 video content on top of MP3, WMA and Ogg files.

The YP-D1 features a built in 2 Megapixel digital camera, FM radio and a 1.8in LCD display. The YP-T8 also features a 1.8in LCD display, FM radio and MPEG4 playback capability. The YP-F1 is a smaller player that can be worn around your neck and it comes with three different covers. Finally the YP-W3 is a pocket watch style design with eight real diamonds and gold plated body for those looking for something out of the ordinary. It also features 1GB of flash memory and FM radio.
