Samsung says Yepp to all-girl rollerskating troupe

Gets rolling with latest multimedia player

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Samsung is set to expand its Yepp portable multimedia player (PMP) series with a new sleek black offering. Dubbed the YP-P2, the device is rumoured to boast a whole host of functions ranging from videos and music, to FM radio, datacasts and Bluetooth.

The YP-P2 is thought to measure about 10 x 5 x 0.9cm and, according to an online video of the device in use, be primarily operated via a 438 x 240 pixel touchscreen display or blue circular wheel. It may also ship with up to 8GB of Flash memory and include support for MP3, WMV, WMA and H.264 file formats.

A bizarre series of pictures have also surfaced online showing a troupe of scantily-clad rollerblading girls, each sporting a YP-P2 worn as an armband.
