CES 2005: SanDisk unveils new players, capacities and clip-on panels

SanDisk considerably updated its flash series, having announced Cruzer Mini with 2 GB and 4 GB capacities, Cruzer Micro 1 GB and 2 GB, Cruzer Titanium 1 GB, flash MP3 players, Memory Stick Pro Duo for PlayStation Portable (PSP) and... clip-on panels for Cruzer Micro devices.

One of the most interesting solutions showcased were "clamshell" SecureDigital cards which can be inserted directly into USB ports. Digimaster actually made such an effort regarding SD cards as well, but SanDisk elaborated its USB-SD solutions, so they fit into ports completely.

The first of these SanDisk novelties will be available in Q1 2005, while the detailed specs, etc. will be first announced at the exhibition by Photo Marketing Association (PMA) that will take place in Orlando, February 20-23.

As for MP3 players I mentioned, SanDisk introduced Sansa e100 series that includes 512 MB Sansa e130 and 1 GB Sansa e140. Note that available SD slots coupled with announced 2 GB SecureDigital cards can noticeably increase player capacities. New players support WMA and MP3 formats (protected and not). Other features include:

  • Powers from AAA battery; up to 8 hours of MP3 playback for Sansa e130 and up to 16 hours for Sansa e140
  • USB 2.0 interface
  • FM tuner, memory for up to 20 stations

Cruzer Micro with clip-on panels will go on sale in February with MSRP ranging from $30 for 128 MB to $100 for 1 GB models. Clip-on panels will be packaged with 256, 512, 1024 and 2048 MB SanDisk Cruzer Micro devices.

2 GB SanDisk Cruzer Mini will cost $200, 4 GB SanDisk Cruzer Mini — $400, and 1 GB Cruzer Titanium $170.

SanDisk Sansa will be available in March 2005 with MSRP of $150 for 512 MB and è $200 for 1 GB model.
