I don’t know about you but I don’t want Bluetooth on my iPod for wireless headphones. The range and sound quality issues that plague Bluetooth mobile phone headsets would only be magnified on an iPod. BT might be useful for music syncing though… You can bet that Apple will be keeping a close eye on the new player from Sammy:

Samsung’s YP-T9B music player, which just debuted in South Korea at a reported $280 with 4 gigabytes of memory. It’s pricier than the Nano but offers this advantage: no wires. That’s sweet relief if you’ve ever sat up real quick and ripped the buds out of your ears or skied with the Nano’s cord snapping at your cheek.

Samsung is the first major manufacturer to embed a Bluetooth radio chip in an MP3 player, allowing it to broadcast to a pair of wireless stereo headphones.
