SanDisk presented the new Sansa Clip+, these MP3 players feature a one-inch OLED display, microSD memory card with SlotRadio and slotMusic card support, FM tuner, and built-in microphone. The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ has a rechargeable, li-ion battery with up to 15 hours of battery life, and will soon be available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB versions for $39.99, $49.99 and $69.99, respectively.
As the successor to the best selling full-featured sub-$100 MP3 player in America, the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player is fully compatible with SanDisk slotRadio™ and slotMusic™ cards, as well as any microSD card pre-loaded with music. By sliding any of these cards into the new Sansa Clip+ memory card slot, music lovers can instantly listen to premium songs and handcrafted playlists without consuming any of the device’s onboard memory.
* slotRadio cards: SanDisk slotRadio cards (starting at $39.99 MSRP, U.S. only) give consumers immediate access to some of their favorite styles of music, including Rock, Country, Oldies and Hip Hop/R&B. Most slotRadio cards contain 1,000 songs** featuring chart topping artists from the Billboard® charts.
* slotMusic cards: Consumers can also insert a SanDisk slotMusic card into their Sansa Clip+ MP3 player’s microSD card slot to plug-and-play the latest albums (on microSD card) from today’s hottest artists, as well as greatest hits’ compilations from past decades (cards start at $14.99 MSRP, U.S. only). slotMusic cards make music portable and can also be used in mobile phones with a microSD card slot that can play MP3 files, computers with a microSD USB reader or an SD card adapter, and even some car stereos with a microSD USB reader or SD card adapter.
* Custom-loaded microSD cards: Consumers have the option of inserting a microSD card loaded with their own music library to listen to — up to 4,000 additional songs1 per 16GB card — which again adds interoperability with other devices, including mobile phones that are microSD card compatible.
Tailor made for budget and time-conscious music fans looking for the best MP3 player for the money, the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player offers outstanding sound quality; long-lasting rechargeable battery; bright, easy-to-read screen, and compact wearable design.
