SanDisk and Yahoo unite for MP3 goodness Flash memory producer SanDisk released a statement saying that it has recently partnered with Yahoo in a music sharing service directly geared towards their Sansa Connect digital audio player.
Sansa Connect will not only allow users to listen to their favorite MP3s, but it also has built in WiFi which will enable users to connect to Yahoo's music service without the need to first connect to a PC. Details of the agreement are not known, but it is said that the Sansa connect will be associated with both a free service as well as a subscription based service provided by Yahoo.

Released in January and available for sale in the US, the Sansa Connect is said to be the number 2 digital audio player behind longshot front runner, the iPod. SanDisk, like many others before it, hopes to take some of the 70% market share away from Apple and the Sansa Connect player is one of a few devices showcased at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.

SanDisk hopes to reclaim some of the profit drop it has felt with the decline in prices for flash memory and releases this player to the tune of $250.
