The P2 can be found in the U.S. if you're looking. The 16GB can not be found in the U.S.

Why is Canada the only place you can get the 16gb?

I just picked up an 8gb P2+ at my local Best Buy yesterday. It was $179 + tax. They also had the original P2 4gb or $149.

My understanding is that the P2+ is just a P2 with the latest firmware already loaded. My device came with firmware 5.09 and I updated it to 5.10 today.

Canada isn't the only place with the 16GB P2....the US is just about the only large major market without it. It's all a matter of perspective. Only Samsung knows but not uncommon for them thus far:

1) Z5 for the US -> Z5F (added FM tuner) for Asia/EU
2) T9 (4GB) for the US -> T9B (Bluetooth, 4GB) for Canada -> T9B (Bluetooth, 8GB) for Asia/EU
3) T10 (4GB) for the US/CAN -> T10 (8GB) for Asia/EU
4) S5 (4GB) for the US/CAN -> S5 (8GB) for Asia/EU
5) P2 (8GB) for the US -> P2 (16GB) Asia/CAN/EU

Apparently they don't offer the top models in the US. The Sony NWZ-A829 and upcoming Cowon S9 may be good alternatives for those in the states who don't want to be treated like 2nd hand consumers.

Sorry but i'm going to have to correct you -
1. I have the Z5 - never seen the Z5F around in the UK
The T10 4gb is around here, you can see it at Currys
Haven't seen the P2 16gb anywhere. I sent an email to Samsung and they said they've got no details for the 16gb release in the UK.

I picked up a P2 at Fry's for 130 8gb version.

YMMV - I think this Fry's had it's pricing screwed up in its computer system.

Get this player!! The playback sound is amazing

<<< bit of an audiofreak.

Sorry but I'm going to have to correct you. First, the last time I checked, the UK does not equal the EU. Secondly, I found the 8GB T9B in Italy and Germany and not the UK. So just because I said EU doesn't mean everybody in the EU. Besides, Samsung.com.uk has a support page for the Z5F.

http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/do...isp_nm=YP-Z5FA

Read the post again...better yet, I'll post it again since you abviously missed it.

"Apparently they don't offer the top models in the US."


I'll make it more plain for you; The 4GB T10 is not the top model. The 8GB model is the highest capacity model available. Clear? Furthermore, you weren't observant to discover www.advancedmp3players.co.uk does carry the 16GB P2. Last time I checked, a co.uk website was the UK. That's where they think they operate from so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they know where they are located.

Advanced MP3 Players
No.2 The Old Engine House,
Eskmills Business Park,
Station Road,Musselburgh,
EH21 7PQ,
Scotland,
UK.

Scotland is in the UK on my map too. The listing for the 16GB P2 is below:

Thanks for the correction!
