Samsung officially announced in Korea its YP-R1 portable media player that we’ve seen previously. One of the features of the Samsung R1 is the Beat DJ function that allows users to add their own voice and sound effects to their favorite songs. Users can also ‘scratch’ records on the super-clear 2.6” display to create personalized music.
The Samsung YP-R1 features a 2.6-inch touchscreen and includes the TouchWiz UI that is found on Samsung’s touchscreen phone most of the time. The R1 has 8GB or 16GB internal memory. It supports most media formats including DivX video.
The Samsung YP-R1 Beat DJ PMP will be released in Europe in September, with other markets including Russia, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan to follow.
