Samsung YP-T9 8GB

Following the trend of recent high-end flash players, Samsung today said it would boost the capacity of its YP-T9 jukebox to 8GB, making the device one of the largest-capacity flash handhelds capable of playing video. The extra storage allows for as many as 16 movies to be stored at 500MB each, Samsung says. Although the features are largely unchanged and range from MPEG-4 video to FM radio and MP3/WMA audio, the Korean edition of the YP-T9 will continue to sport Bluetooth for streaming audio to wireless headphones and speakers. Playback time is rated at 30 hours for audio and 6 hours for video, down slightly from the 7 hours of video claimed for the American 2GB and 4GB models. No pricing has been announced, but it will likely fall in line with that of rivals at roughly $250 US. A launch in North America is anticipated without the Bluetooth feature.
