SanDisk Presents Sansa c200 MP3 Player With Color Screen, Card Slot And 2GB Capacity For Under $100
SanDisk Corporation today introduced the Sansa c200 series, a stylish flash memory-based MP3 player with a bright LCD color screen (1.4", 128 x 98 pixels) and a microSD expansion slot – and the $100 U.S. MSRP threshold for a 2GB model. The announcement was made at a press conference at IFA.
The c200 is sold in two capacities – 1GB and 2GB. However, the memory can be expanded with the addition of an optional microSD card, which currently is available in capacities of from 256MB to 2GB. The c200 supports WMA, MP3 and the protected WMA DRM format that gives consumers the ability to purchase or subscribe to music from most music service providers.
Suggested retail prices are $79.99 for the 1GB unit and $99.99 for the 2GB unit, and the SanDisk c200 is expected to be available from retailers in the U.S. and Europe in October, with other regions following later.
Offered on the Sansa c200 are an FM tuner/recorder with presets for 20 channels, a voice recorder and a user-replaceable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 15 hours of continuous playback. The SanDisk c200 has Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface and is Microsoft Windows PlaysForSure compatible, meaning that it will support subscription music from on-line music providers such as Rhapsody, Napster and Yahoo! Music.
The Sansa c200 will display both music album art and digital photos, which can be imported directly from a personal computer or seamlessly from music files with album art data in the song information. It also can run a slide show of images while playing music. The player sports a thin profile of 1.3” x 3.1” x .6”, weight of 1.51 ounces with battery, 1.09 without, and a durable plastic case.
The Sansa c200 joins a family of SanDisk Sansa players that also includes the budget-priced m200, with capacities of 512MB, 1GB and 2GB; and the top-of-the-line e200, which has a 1.8-inch TFT color screen, plays music, photos and video clips and comes in capacities of 2GB, 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB.
