Subject:Cases for the Samung P2 (YP-P2) MP3 Player
Time:05:22 pm
I just got a Samsung P2 8GB MP3 player. It's very nifty and I may write more about it, but the first thing I realized I needed was a case. I have a 4G 1st-gen iPod Nano, and I got one of those silicone "nanotubes" for it, and it's done exactly what I always needed, which is to make it a lot more "grippable" while also giving it some resistance to bumps and hard surfaces.

Apparently some of the first P2's came with a hard "crystal case," but mine from Amazon did not. I did some googling and have found the following cases:

Noreve - Tradition leather case

Digital Life Outfitters - Action Jacket

In addition, Gizmodo has pictures of various peripherals for the P2, including the crystal case and some nifty BT speakers, but I don't see any of these coming up on the Samsung website yet. I've also emailed DLO to see if they are going to make a silicone case for the P2, so I hope they say 'yes'.

I've also found a nifty forum that seems to have more information than anywhere else about the P2.

Badak, a Korean freeware transcoder that, with the proper preset, supports the P2.


12/09/2007 Update:
Change the player region and switch from the MTP to UMS interface. MTP is Media Transfer Protocol, which means that the player is treated as a special device which you can't play from directly and will warn you about copying the wrong formats of files. UMS treats the device like a standard flash drive.

While DLO isn't planning on making a fitted silicone case for the player, it looks like the generic case makers have hit ebay with their own. I plan to pick one up once I get back from Taiwan.

Protip: Don't forget the charging cable at home when you take your shiny new MP3 player to entertain you on the long flights to/from Taiwan.

Hey there! Just a random message, but I recently got a G15 and your Teamspeak utility for it, and it is awesome! Thanks a lot :)
