Mention MP3 players and the iPod will definitely come into your mind. While other players in the market have tried to dislodge the iPod from its lofty perch through numerous efforts, it is safe to say that they are far from succeeding, but that doesn’t mean that SanDisk will give up the fight just like that. No sir, SanDisk, being the global leader in flash memory cards, has just announced that they will be releasing their latest MP3 player – the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player. This model will feature a microSD memory card slot, virtually allowing you to store plenty of albums on individual microSD cards that makes for easy categorizing. After all, file transfer is a snap using the standard drag-and-drop method.
SanDisk claims that their Sansa Clip+ MP3 player is one of the best sounding MP3 players in the market – how true that is remains to be seen, although we do wonder whether there is any clause if this claim is limited to a player of its size or price range. The Sansa Clip+ will succeed its predecessor, unceremoniously known as the Clip, and will retain full compatibility with SanDisk slotRadio and slotMusic cards, alongside any microSD memory card that boasts pre-loaded music files. Features of the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player includes a wearable clip that makes for hands-free portability, a 1″ OLED display that ought to be bright enough for use even under direct sunlight. It will sport a simple user interface that makes it a snap to select songs and playlists through a variety of assortments. An integrated FM tuner with 40 preset stations make it a snap for you to select your favorite station wherever you are, with a built-in microphone turning the Sansa Clip+ into an impromptu voice recorder.
Available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities, the Sansa Clip+ will retail for $39.99, $49.99 and $69.99, respectively, where you can choose from red, blue or black colors.
