Samsung Yepp DMB P2
Samsung today announced the release of its Yepp P2 DMB portable media player, adding the ability to play television programs and movies delivered via Korea's DMB mobile TV standard. The new device will add a hideaway antenna and a built-in T-DMB tuner to pick up the streaming video service. The device also includes the same features it was launched with, including Bluetooth 2.0 support for wireless headphone set-up, an FM radio and a 3-inch touchscreen.
The multimedia device will play MPEG-4-, WMV- and SVI-format videos as well, for six hours straight, while music can be played for 30 hours. The P2 will be available in either black or white, with 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities, which will cost the equivalent of $250, $299, and $386, respectively. Samsung has no plans to bring the Yepp P2 DMB to North America, which doesn't support the DMB format. [via Akihabara]
