SanDisk Sansa View on Hold

SanDisk is rethinking its decision to introduce the Sansa View, according to a company spokesman. The flash producer says that it wants to "re-scope" the device, which would have been the firm's first media player focused on video support. The move effectively postpones its release indefinitely, though the company's commitment to the View is still strong and that the release is a question of both a proper feature set and good timing, the spokesman says.

"The market is changing fast and furious and we want to shift our efforts to develop a [portable media player] that will meet the needs of the market versus pushing out the wrong product," he says. "So we're taking another look."

The View in announced form would have been one of the first explicitly HD-capable media players on the market, capable of displaying 1080i HD video through TV output. It would also have offered the greatest amount of storage expansion through an SDHC card slot with support for 4GB or more of extra flash. [via Engadget]
