We're loving Samsung's new line of PMPs, and as lifelong haters of forced video conversion, we're especially glad that Samsung's been throwing us torrent-using pirates a bone with great codec support and a 2.7-inch touchscreen in its new YP-R1 PMP.

We don't know too much about the 2.7-inch touchscreened YP-R1, as it's merely leaked onto a British online shop, but it looks like the YP-R1 is set to bring it in the audio department (with AAC, FLAC, and OGG support in addition to MP3 and WMA) as well as video (where it can read Xvid, DivX, H.264, MPEG-4, WMV, and, oddly, Real Media Video). It's got TV-out to display all that goodness on a big screen, though the only capacity we know about is a paltry 8GB, which just doesn't cut it these days. The page shows a release date of July 30th and a price of about $180 USD, which is a little pricey for an 8GB player. We'll keep an eye on the R1 for more official specs, and check out our Samsung P3 review for a look at Samsung's current PMP line. [DapReview]

Anyone got other screenshots? Damn, I want this. Video is something the iPod Touch absolutely blows at, to the point where I don't use video at all. I'd ditch my iPod Touch for this no problem.
