SanDisk Sansa Clip+ brings microSD

SanDisk Sansa Clip Plus

SanDisk launched its first new media player in over a year today with the Sansa Clip+. The major revision to its iPod shuffle competitor fits a microSDHC card slot and can use this either to expand the built-in storage or to play the company's preloaded slotMusic or slotRadio cards. It's also finally Mac-compatible and lets those users drag-and-drop music from Mac OS X Panther or later.

The player continues to hinge on its namesake clip as well as unusually high-quality audio decoding. Format support is relatively broad and includes the relatively common MP3, WAV and WMA standards as well as Audible audiobooks, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis; an FM tuner provides radio. The 1-inch OLED helps achieve the claimed 15-hour battery life by using relatively little energy.

SanDisk will ship versions with 2GB, 4GB and 8GB of storage at prices of $40, $50 and $70 respectively. They should be available online later today, but US retail stores won't get them until September 13th.

    Mac?

    I own the older Clip and it is fully Mac compatible, it just mounts on the desktop like a flash drive.

    Creative should own this

    low-end market. Low prices and removable storage. That is freakin' great. Compared to this device, the shuffle sucks in my opinion. The shuffle became much smaller than I would ever want. I don't buy this level of product, but I can understand that the people who do certainly think this Clip is far better due to the surplus of features.
