Samsung's YP-U1X and YP-U1Z now available in the US

Samsung YP-U1

Finally, the wait is freaking over. Samsung took their sweet time to get this thing out after the release of the shuffle (what's 10 months between friends?), but our favorite tiny audio player, the U1, is now officially out here. Which is good, because we were getting sick of having mules smuggle them in for us one at a time from Korea. The 3.3 x 0.9 x 0.5-inch YP-U1X is the black 512MB version, while the YP-U1Z has a 1GB capacity — both have a 4 line LCD display, integrated fold-out USB 2.0 interface, voice recording, and play MP3, WMA, WAV, and OGG (still a very unusual format for players, especially since Rio died).
