Samsung YPP3 PMP Getting Closer (Check Back in 2009) November 29th, 2008
Samsung YPP2 is universally accepted as the most successful MP3 player in the entire Yeppseries history, so one can expect a followup to the Korean company's flagship touch screen PMP. Early reports now indicate that Samsung does plan to unleash YPP3 during 2009 CES, and it would seem some of improvements are borrowed from Samsung's TouchWiz inteface. Basically, TouchWiz centers around a widget tray that can be customized to include shortcuts to complete apps like photo gallery, memo, clocks, and etc. While the Samsung YPP3 remains largely the same with a 480x272 3" screen, the new flagship PMP now comes with haptic feedback, builtin speakers, Bluetooth 2.1 (supposedly supporting A2DP, AVRCP & HFP profile), aforementioned widget support, and an allnew aluminum chassis (in either black or silver). Additionally, the YPP3 appears to have a touch sensitive bar in place of the P2's circular LED. Samsung also gives in to customers' demand to extend audio and video format compatibility to FLAC and H.264 respectively. All these don't seem much when compared to iPod touch, which now totally rocks with third party apps and games. Perhaps Samsung could invest a decent 3megapixel camera on the YPP3 since its nemesis doesn't have one, yet. Via MovePlayer (warning: Korean)
