SanDisk Connect and Yahoo
SanDisk today announced a team-up with Yahoo for its recently unveiled Sansa Connect jukebox. The 4GB player can now use its Wi-Fi to access multiple Internet features from Yahoo's sites without requiring a host PC: besides supporting direct music downloads for Yahoo's Music Unlimited To Go service, the device can now browse Flickr photo sets, view Yahoo Messenger contacts and their music, or stream Internet radio from Yahoo's LAUNCHcast service.
The Connect is already available now and ships for $250; Flickr, LAUNCHcast, and Yahoo Messenger services are free, while the Music Unlimited To Go feature requires a paid subscription.
