SanDisk unveiled their flash memory based digital audio player line-up today, with three different colours and three different capacities, a 256MB, 512MB and 1GB version. The name of these is about as exciting as SanDisk releasing a flash-based player at this time of the year, the “Digital Audio Player”, I think the marketing people need a few more cups of coffee.
On a good note, these little players have the ability to play Windows Media-based DRM files, meaning you can buy tunes from Musicmatch. Other then that, they have a standard 15 hour playback life on a single AAA, integrated voice recorder, Indiglo backlit display, digital FM radio and a hi-speed USB 2.0 connector. The players are available immediately for $99.99, $149.99 and $199.99 respectively.
