Samsung YP-T9 in US

Samsung earned significant attention in the crowded flash music player market by introducing a model with built-in Bluetooth. However, the newly released version of the device, named the YP-T9, appears to shed this important feature. With the version released to Asian markets, known as the T9B, owners could connect their jukeboxes to Bluetooth headphones as well as sync data wirelessly with their computers. The American T9 reduces the list of advantages over Apple's players to FM radio and MPEG-4 video support, putting it roughly on par with SanDisk's newer Sansa models. Battery life is rated at 30 hours for audio. Best Buy is the first to carry the YP-T9 in the US and is matching other companies' pricing, shipping the 2GB version for $150 and 4GB for $200.
