SanDisk unveils two new digital audio players at CES 2008: a new Sansa Clip with 4GB storage capacity and a Sansa View with 32GB.
The matchbox-sized Sansa Clip, introduced in August in capacities of 1GB and 2GB, is the perfect companion for jogging, working out or just hanging out. The new 4GB version, due in February with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $79.99, can store 1,000 songs, runs for 15 hours on its rechargeable battery and comes in a stylish silver color with a mirror finish on the front. Sansa Clip stands above the leading wearable music player because of its bright OLED color screen – allowing users to select the music they hear, not just wait for songs to come around at random.
The full-featured Sansa View, introduced in September in capacities of 8GB and 16GB, features a vibrant 2.4-inch TFT color screen with 320x240 resolution for crisp playback of full-motion video. The new 32GB version, due in February with an MSRP of $349.99, can hold a stunning 48 two-hour movies or 8,000 songs. The rechargeable, long-lasting lithium ion battery provides 35 hours of audio or 7 hours of video playback. The Sansa View has built-in support for the MPEG4, WMV and H.264 video formats.
Sansa Clip continues to be available in 1GB capacity with an MSRP of $39.99 and 2GB capacity with an MSRP of $59.99. The 4GB Sansa Clip is expected to be available in February in the United States with an MSRP of $79.99. The 1GB Sansa Clip is available in black; the 2GB Sansa Clip is available in black, red, pink or blue; and the 4GB will be available in silver.
Sansa View continues to be available in 8GB capacity with an MSRP of $149.99 and 16GB capacity with an MSRP of $199.99. The 32GB Sansa View is expected to be available in February in the United States with an MSRP of $349.99.
