SAMSUNG Unveils Its New T9b Mp3 Player With Bluetooth Capability

LAS VEGAS - January 8, 2007 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a market leader in consumer electronics and IT equipment, announces availability in the United States of two revolutionary digital devices: the T9B (YP-T9B) and T9 (YP-T9) MP3 players. These ultra slim, ultra portable MP3 players pack a complete portfolio of multimedia features and applications into a sleek, compact device.



Both the T9B and the T9 players pack in features portable entertainment fans need to easily enjoy their favorite content on the go with up to 30 hours of audio and six hours of video playback. Both models are available in up to 4GB versions and feature MPEG4 video playback, 1.8-inch QCIF+ LCD color screen, text viewer, photo viewer, flash games, FM radio and recorder, subscription music service compatibility and more.



The T9B MP3 player takes features a step further and allows consumers to listen free as a bird with Bluetooth-enabled wireless stereo. Now listeners can enjoy grooving to their favorite songs wire-free using compatible Bluetooth enabled headphones. And with advanced remote control functions on the headsets including play, pause, seek and volume control, the T9B player can stay safely tucked away in a pocket or bag.



When consumers pair the T9B player with a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, music lovers won't have to worry about missing a call while listening to their favorite tunes; the player tells its user when they have an incoming call. While the mobile phone is in a pocket or bag, users can talk to friends and family by using the embedded microphone within the T9B MP3 player. When the call is over, the T9B player takes the user back to where they left off with their music.



"The future of consumer technology lies in convergence and Samsung is leading the trend by offering the multifunctional T9 and T9B devices," said Dongsoo Jun, Senior Vice President & General Manager of the Digital AV Division, Digital Media Business, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. "By creating the T9 model with and without Bluetooth capabilities we are ensuring there is an MP3 player to meet all needs. Not everyone may be ready for Bluetooth, which is why we are pleased to be able to provide consumers with exactly what they are looking for."



Enhanced by the well-placed buttons on the T9B and the T9 MP3 players, and their colorful and intuitive graphic user interface, the player is a compact package of simple-to-use multimedia applications that provides consumers with a world of entertainment on the go.
