Samsung YP-P3 in Korea

Samsung today rolled out the YP-P3 in its home country. The new iPod touch rival switches from plastic to aluminum on the outside but is notable most for internal changes borrowed from its cellphones; the new model provides haptic (vibration) feedback for interface presses and has a TouchWiz-like interface that lets users place widgets for memos, clocks and other short info on the home screen. New dedicated controls also give users more control over tracks without opening the main interface.

Samsung uses a Flash-based interface and supports playing Flash games on top of its normal media player functions, which continue to include H.264, MPEG-4 and WMV for video and support AAC, FLAC, MP3, Ogg and WMA for music. Bluetooth 2.1, an FM radio and voice recording also round out the device.

Korea receives the P3 in early January and will offer it in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB variants for the equivalents of $180, $211 and $248 respectively. Samsung regularly sells the P2 in the US and is likely to introduce the P3 at or near the Consumer Electronics Show, which starts on January 8th. [via DAPreview]
