Samsung intros R1 player

Samsung on Monday officially announced its YP-R1 Beat media player and released full specs for the device. The R1 will play DiVX files, which means users don't need to convert videos to other formats. At about a third of an inch, the device is also the thinnest media player with DiVX compatibility, as well as the only one with a 2.6-inch touchscreen. The same TouchWiz interface found in Samsung smartphones has been used in the R1, allowing users to drag and drop icons.

A unique Beat DJ feature lets users add their own voice and other sound effects, as well as scratch using a virtual turntable on the touchscreen. The player will be available in 8GB or 16GB capacities, though pricing is unknown. It will arrive at European stores in September, with Russia, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan following soon thereafter.
