SanDisk Sansa Shaker
Quickly following up on earlier leaks, SanDisk today launched the Sansa Shaker. The screenless music player is aimed directly at kids with its namesake feature letting listeners shake the player to skip tracks. Music sharing is also a centerpiece feature: aside from a built-in speaker, the Shaker also fits dual headphone jacks for listening with a friend.
The cost is just as kid-friendly, based on SanDisk's claims: storage is provided solely through SD cards, with a 512MB card included at the $40 price that gives starting space as well as the option of swapping out for up to 2GB later. The Shaker will be ready late this month in blue or pink and comes with a single AAA battery that provides 15 hours of MP3 tunes. A full image follows the break.
