Samsung, which in recent has enjoyed great success with their line of TVs and mobile phones, still isn’t a brand you think of when it comes to portable audio. But they’re working on it, and their latest PMP, leaked courtesy of a retailer, isn’t looking too shabby. The YP-R1 sports a 2.7-inch 400×240 touchscreen, 8GB of storage, 3.5mm headphone jack with Bluetooth A2DP support, FM radio, video out and a fair amount of audio (AAC, FLAC, OGG, MP3 and WMA) and video (Xvid, DivX, H.264, MPEG-4, WMV and Real Media Video) codec support. If the product page is correct, you can expect Samsung’s YP-R1 PMP to launch July 30th and cost about $180.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
