Samsung YP-T9B Player

Instead of targeting the whole spectrum of digital audio players, as Creative has done with its lineup, Samsung has held to the larger sphere of flash-based players. The company is one of the iPod nano's primary competitors, especially in southeast Asia where the Korean players enjoy much more success. That region is understandably the first to see Samsung's latest response to the nano, known as the YP-T9B. Released first to China, the new player is a variant on an earlier 4GB flash player that adds Bluetooth support. Users can connect to any Bluetooth headphones or speakers that fit the A2DP wireless audio profile; the YP-T9B can also use the wireless link to sync with a computer. Samsung also bests Apple through conventional means: the T9B can play video on a 1.8-inch screen and has OGG audio support to complement the common MP3 and WMA formats. Battery life also lasts for a long 30 hours of audio and 6 hours of video. North American launch details have not yet been announced. A full photo of the player is available after the jump.
