Yepp YP-P2: Samsung’s Challenge to the Apple iPod Touch

I personally like the physical design of many Samsung products. The YP-K5 MP3 player, for example, is quite the attractive piece with its slide-out speaker and touch-sensitive controls.

Possibly in an effort to compete against the recently announced iPod touch, Samsung has launched the Samsung Yepp YP-P2, a personal media player that boasts a touchscreen display. Surely, these can’t be the first touchscreen media players, but the comparisons are inevitable. The touchscreen measures three inches across the diagonal, rocks a 480×272 resolution, and has a beautiful 16:9 aspect ratio.

Measuring just 9.9mm thick — Samsung loves thin gadgetry — the Yepp YP-P2 also has Bluetooth 2.0 and support for a Korea-only iTunes-like music store (Samsung Media Studio). In fact, the Bluetooth-ness will pair with two Bluetooth headphones and one wired headphone simultaneously.

Available in blue, white, and red, the Samsung Yepp YP-P2 starts at $220 for the 2GB version, going up to $261 for the 4GB and $315 for the 8GB. Korea-only, at least for now.
