I'm a bit surprised but it seems that the YP-W1 will finally reach the US market!

The product page is ready: http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cel...s/YP-W1NAL/STA
While it is called "S Pebble" in the other countries, Samsung decided to rename it "Muse" for the US market. A strange decision since "Muse" is also the friendly name of Philips DAP SA3MUSXXS...

You can also notice it is considered as a "cell-phone accessory" on Samsung US website while in most other countries it is sold as a normal MP3 player.

Moreover, Samsung US provides a free dedicated app "Muse Sync" on the store https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...usesync#?t=W10
This app only works with Galaxy S3 and Note2 unfortunately, I can't install it on my Galaxy S2. That said, I'm not sure it's really worth it. I personally like copy&paste transfers, no need for a sync software.

The version sold in the USA should be the latest revision with touch keys a bit redesigned (bottom) compared to my early version (top):


Available in Pebble Blue et Marble White colors for $49,99.

Conclusion: Really different marketing strategy for the US but still the same product
