SanDisk Announces Sansa View Slim Media Player
SanDisk Corporation today announced the new Sansa View video MP3 player. Expected to be available in October, the Sansa View will carry MSRP of $199.99 for a 16GB model and $149.99 for the 8GB one.
A significant step-up from the company's Sansa e200 music player series, the slim Sansa View features music, photos, FM radio and audio books, plus easy video transferring capabilities and hefty memory capabilities of up to 24GB (by using an optional 8GB microSD/microSDHC card).
Most popular formats are supported by the novelty via embedded player functionality (H.264, WMV and MPEG4), or via a one-time software download of the Sansa Media Converter which quickly transcodes numerous video files, including DivX.
A MP3 player at its core, the Sansa View device comes equipped with all the features typically found in the Sansa audio line. The smooth, backlit scroll wheel and 2.4" widescreen display make it easy to navigate to: a music library; video collection; digital photos; digital FM radio with 20 pre-sets; an integrated microphone and voice recording, and Audible audiobooks.
The device supports music download and subscription services, including Rhapsody To Go, Napster, eMusic, and others.
The Sansa View player will come in 8GB and 16GB capacities and is expected to be available from retailers in the U.S. in early fall with other regions to follow shortly thereafter.
