Samsung Pebble review

T oday's households are no longer complete without Samsung. From HD plasma television sets to Blu-ray players and Media players. Samsung has secured its position in the media player market with, among others, the Samsung YP-P2 mediaplayer, featuring a touchscreen monitor and the Bluetooth possibility. Samsung seems able to turn its hand at anything, and is daring enough to tread virgin ground where other corporations prove to be more conservative. This also goes for the Samsung S2. By now, we are familiar with the Apple iPod Shuffle and the Creative Zen Stone. This pair wasn't appreciated by everyone, mainly due to the fact that MP3 players without a screen simply aren’t trendy. But maybe they will be, with the launch of the Samsung S2, which is trying hard to surpass the Shuffle and Stone with its very beautiful appearance. Read our extensive LetsGoMobile Samsung YP-S2 review for more information.

Design of the Samsung S2 Pebble

The Samsung YP-S2, also known as Pebble, has a round design with a glossy front. The MP3 player is available in the colors; red, black, white, purple and green. The Pebble does not have a screen, but does come with a hidden LED lamp available on the front. The color will tell you which setting is activated. A blinking blue light stands for general play mode. When the LED blinks green/purple/blue, the music is played randomly (shuffle mode) and when only the purple light blinks, the playlist mode is activated. These settings can be adjusted through the 'smart' key that is found on the back of the MP3 player.

The remaining buttons are also found on the back; such as the keys for the volume, previous/next song and the play/pause button. The dimensions of the Samsung S2 are 42x40x16mm and although this makes it a small MP3 player, it fits better in my hand than the Apple iPod or Creative Zen Stone. On top of that, the Pebble is very light-weight, while at the same time solid and sturdy. It is in fact so light, that you get the impression it could have come equipped with more; like a screen, for example. The S2 supports the following formats: MP3, WMA and OGG. The Pebble comes with an ear set (cord), Samsung Media Studio Software, manual and a 3mm connector to USB adaptor.
