SAMSUNG’S First 4GB Flash Memory MP3 Player With Music-To-Go Subscription Service Support Is a Huge Success

Ridgefield Park, N.J. - Samsung Electronics reaffirmed its reputation as a leading innovator in the portable audio space with the ultra-slim, lightweight flash-memory player that puts rich 3-D sound and virtually unlimited musical choice in the palm of consumers' hands. The YP-Z5 Music Jukebox works seamlessly with music subscription services and features a long-lasting rechargeable battery for up to 35 hours of continuous music enjoyment.

"The YP-Z5 displays Samsung's commitment to expanding the market possibilities in the super-competitive portable digital audio space," said Matt Durgin, senior marketing manager, Digital Media Products, Samsung Electronics America. "Consumers are choosing digital music subscription services and Samsung supports this trend with its first 4GB flash player to offer subscription capabilities. With a 1.8" quality LCD screen, a slim, durable body and extended battery life, the YP-Z5 stands above the competition."

The YP-Z5 supports popular subscription services such as MTV's Urge, Napster, Rhapsody and Yahoo so consumers can play DRM content transferred from a PC. Weighing in at just over two ounces and sporting an ultra-slim body, the YP-Z5 slips comfortably into pocket or purse and boasts a durable aluminum body to prevent scratches and smudges Samsung's proprietary DNSe Portable 3-D Sound Technology offers superb sound, and the close to 35-hour rechargeable battery life provides round-the-clock music, far exceeding other high-capacity flash devices.

The 1.8" color TFT-LCD screen is one of the largest in its class and lets users view photographs and album art with ease. Users can create sizzling slideshows with dynamic effects, as well as pan and zoom in on digital photos. The unique touch pad interface makes navigating functions a snap and users can customize the interface background with any JPEG.

The YP-Z5 is Microsoft PlaysForSure-enabled and supports MP3, WMA, WMA DRM10 and JPEG formats. The Samsung's YP-Z5 comes in silver, pink and black and is currently available at $149, MSRP (1GB), $199 MSRP (2GB) and $249 MSRP (4GB).
