Samsung P2 16GB and Other CES News

samsung ces main Samsung P2 16GB and Other CES News

Samsung had nothing new to show in terms of MP3 players, but I did find out from a Samsung rep that they will be releasing a 16GB version of the P2 sometime in Q1 of 08.

I did get a chance to check out the S5 which will replace the K5. It sounded just as good but slims down and gets a color screen and Bluetooth. This will actually make an interesting accessory for Bluetooth mobile phones being that it will give you a nice and loud speaker phone conferencing set up. The S5 is available now in the US in 4GB versions and can be picked up for around $180.

The other interesting portable audio accessory was the portable Bluetooth speakers, the BS300. It sounded a bit better than the speakers in the S5 and K5 from what I could tell over all the noise. It will tie into your Bluetooth MP3 player or operate as a speakerphone with its built in mic for your cellphone. It retails for $130.

I snapped a few pics at the booth- a bit blurry but still fun to look at.

What about the P2 Cradle, that was suppoes to have WiFi, Micro Sd expantion, Fm transmiter, and an built in speaker? I thought it was going to be out at CES.

Fake

Oh well, at least the P2 will be 16gb. Now we can hope that it will be decently priced ($250.00/US is too much for an 8gb player). By the way,……. one of my favorite sites, keep up the good work!!!

Great to hear that there might be a 16 gb version. That would really fit the bill for me, if they could bring it down to a ~$250 price. Then that would really deal a blow to the Sansa View and “vanilla Zen”.

I have just purchaed an 8GB P2 and upgraded the firmware- now its awesome! Though I won’t buy a 16GB P2, i’ll look in to that “docking cradle”, and if it supports MicroSC-HC, then in the future it can supprot a 32GB MicroSD card, making it 40GBs.

slaughterMYdaughter on January 16, 2008 9:26 PM

Anyone know when S5 will hit stores?

nywytboy68 on January 28, 2008 9:17 AM

Turns out the docking cradle was just a rumor (prob a little late 2 tell you though :-O). Just need 2 know what the video life really is before I take the plunge on the 16gb P2.

Look on the 2nd picture at the bottom of the black P2, isn’t that a dock?

David on February 13, 2008 10:14 PM

It says”I did find out from a Samsung rep that they will be releasing a 16GB version of the P2 sometime in Q1 of 08″Can someone tell me what “Q1″ stands for? Does is stand for quarter one?

Se7en2 on February 15, 2008 12:57 PM

Yes, Q1=Quarter 1. I’m anxiously awaiting it’s release, as 8GB isn’t big enough. As mentioned before, let’s hope it’s reasonably priced.Those speakers look pretty interesting, as well. I would have to find some where to test them before I buy them, though.

Peter on March 9, 2008 6:29 PM

how about bigger lcd and internet connectivity?

iff2mastamatt on March 14, 2008 4:59 PM

I was hopping for the multicradle to be released, but whatever. I have the 8GB and thats plenty of memory for me.

In the shops of Tehran they are selling the 16gb p2 for weeks ! I did not find any place online which sells the 16gb p2 except this one : http://www.shop.bt.com/productview.aspx?quicklinx=4PBKshould I buy it? I’m worried that it would be a fake !

rose on September 4, 2008 2:24 AM

Compare its price,the quality is lower.Don’t trust samsun

Akira on October 21, 2008 4:16 AM

I’m thinking of getting the samsung T10 8gb for around $104 USD.I was just wondering since I’m new to this whole blue tooth thing. Would I be able to hook up the T10 to such blue tooth speakers? Or would it be just impossible?Appreciate any infoThx, By the way this site has been very informative with really good reviews that have aided me with the decision to choose a good mp3. Thx for the site

sony on October 28, 2008 9:48 PM

Thank you for this outstanding article.I thought Centrino was the best technology for laptop battery performance.
