Samsung Unveils S2 Pebble MP3 Player & S3 Slim Portable Media Player
Samsung has announced the S2 Pebble MP3 Player and S3 Slim Portable Media Player (PMP). Samsung’s newest additions to their line of portable media players are available in a variety of colors and have been developed with a comfortable and ergonomic form factor to ensure that each player not only fits in a hand or pocket, but is also easy to use. Samsung’s proprietary sound technology, Digital Natural Sound engine 2.0 (DNSe) provides quality acoustics that are optimized for playback through the included earphones.
S2 ‘Pebble’ MP3 Player
The Pebble, which looks like a polished stone, is available in black, white, red, green and purple. It offers MP3, WMA and OGG file playback for up to 13 hours on a single charge via the rechargeable Li-Poly battery, and includes support for a mobile playlist. The 1GB of internal flash memory provides enough storage space for approximately 16 hours of audio.
All controls are placed along the back face of the Pebble, including play/pause, volume, playback options (standard, random, repeat), and DNSe 2.0 audio enhancements for a straightforward interface that is easy to navigate even without seeing the buttons. A hidden LED along the bottom edge flashes numerous colors and patterns based on the selected playback mode and EQ setting.
S3 Slim Portable Media Player
The all-new S3 Slim Portable Media Player features full multimedia functionality in a colorful, compact and feather-weight package. At a mere 0.4 inches thick and 1.8 ounces, the S3 takes up only about the size of a standard business card holder, yet it combines the versatility of a well-rounded music player (MP3, WMA), FM radio and recorder, JPEG photo viewer, video player (MPEG4), text reader and compact game system. Keeping fashion-conscious consumers in mind, the S3 offers a selection of shades and tones to accessorize from including green, red, blue, and the classic black and white. The built-in rechargeable Li-Poly battery can provide a near 25 hours of audio playback and up to 4 hours of video enjoyment – both which pair well with the S3’s 4GB of internal flash storage. A 1.8-inch screen, offers enough visual real estate for watching short video clips and photo slideshows, while the DNSe 2.0 sound engine provides powerful, adjustable sound playback.
The Samsung S2 ‘Pebble’ MP3 Player, with 1GB capacity and the S3 Slim Portable Media Player with 4GB capacity will both be available in June 2008. No pricing has been announced.
