So you're looking for a DAP that's got all the cred of the Samsung YP-T9 but none of the screen resolution, Flash interface, PlaysForSure support or battery life? Lasonic's got you covered with the VP-SBK line of DAPs, which feature the same 1.8-inch screen size and basic design as the Sammy, but flips the D-pad color scheme and adds a built-in speaker and, bizarrely enough, an ebook reader for those who've always wanted glasses. 2GB versions are apparently popping up in Fry's right now for $60 -- and we bet Samsung's lawyers are already on the phone.
