Samsung YP-MB2 spotted at Korean portal

Samsung YP-MB2 appears at Korean e-tailer, specs and release date in tow……

Astute Samsung fans may have noticed an August 11th date circulating the web, and taken it to mean the company will then officially announce the Samsung Galaxy Tab. As it turns out, there’s at least one more possibility: the YP-MB2 portable media player, spotted at Korean portal Daum and supposedly ready to launch on the very same day.

While rumors surrounding the possible iPod touch competitor have swirled for weeks, all we knew for sure was that it was a GPS and WiFi-capable Android 2.1 MID with a four-inch Super AMOLED screen. Now, it looks like it could be everything we wanted in a PMP a Galaxy S missing only the bits that made it a phone and capable of decoding DivX, XviD, OGG and FLAC with that 1GHz Hummingbird processor.

It’s still unlikely we’ll ever see it stateside with its T-DMB antenna inside, but if a pared-down version made to the US we’d be most happy to give it a try. Sadly, even the Korean version’s just a particularly likely rumor for now.
