Samsung unveiled the IceTouch (YP-H1) portable media player today at the CES 2010. The IceTouch features the world's first 2-inch, full color, transparent Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (AMOLED) touch-screen display.
Features of this unique device include DVD-quality video player, studio quality audio player, an ultra-portable photo album, an FM radio and even a portable storage device.
In addition to the full-color transparent AMOLED touch screen, the IceTouch features a high-performance CPU and Samsung’s own TouchWiz Sweep interface, which is designed to provide a comfortable grip and give users new options for interacting with their player.
The Samsung IceTouch comes with 16GB of storage and 5.1-channel sound enhancement.
The YP-H1 supports MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC, AAC, M4A, WAV and MP3HD audio codecs, and video hounds will love being able to playback MPEG4, WMV, H.264, Xvid and Divx files.
The AMOLED screen casing is constructed using a dual-injection molding process and tempered glass and results in a smooth, durable and scratch-proof surface that is aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable to the touch. The IceTouch, which comes in white, can also be individually customized through separately sold color skins in pink, blue, purple and gray.
The Samsung IceTouch will be shipping in the first half of 2010.
The IceTouch promises to dazzle customers away from the Apple iPods with the unique screen and impressive features.
