Samsung unveils Nano rival

Samsung today unveiled the YP-T9B in Southeast Asia, a digital media player featuring Bluetooth wireless capability in an effort to rival Apple's iPod nano. First released to China, the new player is a variant of an earlier 4GB flash player that adds Bluetooth support -- something the iPod nano currently lacks. Users can connect to any Bluetooth headphones or speakers that fit the A2DP wireless audio profile, and the YP-T9B can use the wireless link to sync with a computer within range, according to Electronista. The new player also supports video playback on a 1.8-inch screen, and can play OGG audio files as well as MP3 and WMA formats. Samsung's YP-T9B boasts 30 hours of battery life when playing audio and 6 hours for video. Samsung neglected to mention when, if ever, the device will launch in the U.S.
