Samsung P3, Q2, & U5 Get Official US Release Dates and Pricing

p3 release main Samsung P3, Q2, & U5 Get Official US Release Dates and Pricing

We have been holding out here for quite a while for the P3. The rest of the world (even Canada!) has seen the light of this player but finally the US will see it in May. (Press Release) It will retail for $150(8GB), $200(16GB), and $300(32GB), slightly cheaper than what the S9 is currently selling for.

In addition to the P3 the small flash player the U5 as well as the Q2 will arrive stateside sometime in April. The U5 will sell for a mere $40 for a 2GB and the Q2 will retail for $100/$130 in 8GB and 16GB respectively.

The P3 has been one of my main players for the last few months and has gone though some significantly better firmware updates. With the recent update it has become one of my favorites, even edging out the Cowon S9 by a small margin. Stay tuned for a proper in-depth ABI review of the P3 and in the mean time you can check out some user opinions in the P3 forum.

YESS!! P3 here I come! Sorry, Zune maybe another day. My 4 gig P2 cost 150$. But this will be better, at least according to the reviews.

finally! oh man I think I might just get the 16gb one and sell my Archos 605 but it depends on what ABi has to say in the review…

Get your mitts on a Q2. $130 for 16gb. I might be sold if it sounds good!

Bah, I just bought a 8gb P2 from NewEgg for $99 (now sold out)…oh well =/

That Q2 looks way too good to be true. This better not be another April fool’s joke.And why does the player in the picture say YEPP on it?

Relyt on April 1, 2009 4:22 PM

@MMerengueYEPP is Samsung’s digital audio player brand. That’s why all of Samsung’s players have a YP in front of their names (for example: YP-P3). As for why it says YEPP instead of Samsung I don’t know.

Totally psyched. I had my P2 stolen and have been inching by with the ipod shuffle for the last month or so. This could not come at a better time.

A saw the Samsung P3 for sale already but i have no idea if its true or notjust go here

I’m surrprised the p3 doesn’t cost more than it does considering that the p2 is still $160

Voohoo on April 6, 2009 11:45 AM

Wow, I’m quite pleased with the pricing. 8gb is more than enough for me so the $150 is almost and impulse buy for me. However, I kind of like the SONY sound quality of their players more (been looking to get a Walkman for about $100). My P2 is starting to go to shit (crappy battery life, casing coming apart, etc.). I have to keep in mind that the touchscreen Sony player is coming out this year too. Geez, and I “need” to upgrade my headphones. Too many choices, so little money.
