SanDisk unveiled a new line of flash-based MP3 players with storage capacities of up to 4GB and features Windows Media Player 10 and PlayForSure support to be compatible with popular music subscription services such as Rhapsody To Go, Napster To Go and Yahoo! Music Unlimited.
The new players are designed to work seamlessly with a wide range of popular music formats such as MP3 and Windows Media Audio (WMA) in both unprotected and protected files (such as those WMA files purchased from music service providers and music download sites).
The Sansa m200 series is available in 512-megabyte (MB), 1-, 2- and 4GB capacities, which is the highest capacity currently available for flash-based players. The new m200 players can store hundreds of songs and play up to 19 continuous hours on a single AAA battery.
