Samsung is giving Galaxy smartphone users in the United States a new way to enjoy music on the go called Galaxy Muse.
Coupled with the Muse Sync Android app, Samsung is providing Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II owners a new way of syncing music that frees them from their PC.
Galaxy Muse is a small MP3 player that shares several physical features and design aesthetics with the latest Galaxy smartphones, including a rounded design and matching Pebble Blue and Marble White color scheme. In addition, Galaxy Muse provides users up to six hours of play time, 4 GB of memory, and high quality sound thanks to Samsung SoundAlive optimized audio technology.
Users can get their music on the Galaxy Muse by downloading the Muse Sync app from the Google Play marketplace or Samsung Apps. After connecting Galaxy Muse to the Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II via the included connector cable (USB to 3.5mm headset jack), users can sync the songs they want and leave their phone behind. Due to its wearable design and small form factor, users can take Muse along in place of their smartphone as a portable music player on the go.
Galaxy Muse is available in Pebble Blue and MarbleWhite for $49.99 at Samsung.com. The Samsung Muse Sync mobile application is available free from Samsung Apps and the Google Play marketplace.
