SanDisk Introduces 'Sansa Clip' MP3 Player

SanDisk introduces the colorful Sansa Clip, a tiny MP3 player that boasts an array of cool features, as well as distinctively big sound for its small size. Suited for the fitness buff or traveler, the compact Sansa Clip comes with a fashionable clip for wearing, FM radio with recorder, microphone, long-lasting rechargeable battery and a bright screen for exceptionally easy navigation of tunes. The Sansa Clip is expected to be available this fall in 1GB and 2GB models.

Consumers can also show off their style by choosing from an array of colors. The Sansa Clip comes in sleek black, candy apple red, hot pink and ice blue (colors are only available in the 2GB capacity).

The Sansa Clip is loaded with the following features:
- A fashionable wearable clip for hands-free portability and effortless enjoyment of digital music on the go;
- Large, bright (OLED) screen with a simple user interface that makes it easy to choose playlists or songs sorted by title, artist, album, genre;
- FM tuner and recorder with 40 presets for listening to sports, tuning in at the gym or your favorite music station;
- Built-in microphone to record thoughts while exercising or on the go;
- Rechargeable battery with up to 15 hours of life;
- Solid state flash memory for skip-free playback of music.

The Sansa Clip supports many music download and subscription services, including Rhapsody To Go, Napster, eMusic and others. It's designed to work seamlessly with a wide range of popular music formats such as MP3, WAV, Audible (for audio books) and Windows Media Audio (WMA) in both unprotected and protected files (such as those WMA files purchased from music stores). The Sansa Clip can also play "DRM-free" MP3 downloads.

The player is expected to be available from retailers in the U.S. and Europe in September 2007, with other regions to follow shortly thereafter.
