Samsung Pebble and Slim US

Samsung today revealed that two of its smaller Yepp MP3 players will make their way Stateside. The S2 Pebble (pictured) is the company's take on the formula of the iPod shuffle and Creative ZEN Stone and goes without a screen both for cost and for portability: the device is small and light enough to ship with lanyard earbuds. However, Samsung's version adds controls normally absent on these players, including EQ settings and an FM tuner. OGG audio support is also unique along with more typical MP3 and WMA. The American edition of the Pebble ships with 1GB of storage in five different colors and will be ready by June for $39.

In a more conventional design, the S3 Slim promises the features of most current screen-based flash players, with a 1.8-inch LCD that supports JPEG photos and MPEG-4 videos in addition to MP3 and WMA sound; OGG is omitted from this device, though the FM radio remains in place. Support for games built on Adobe Flash also separates the S3 from its screenless counterpart. The Slim comes in the same five color options as the Pebble and will be ready in June with 4GB and 8GB variants selling at unknown prices.
