SanDisk unveils low priced flash based video player SanDisk unveiled its latest player, the Sansa View which it claims will be the cheapest video-enabled media player using flash memory.
At launch, two models will be available, an 8GB unit and a 16GB unit, for $149 and $199 USD respectively. There will be a microSD card slot which can add up to 8GB of extra memory to the device. When the units hit retail shelves in October they will be the cheapest flash based video players on the market.

SanDisk also says the devices will support PlaysForSure and Rhapsody to Go and both will be included.

The View "sports a 2.4-inch Widescreen display, support for H.264, WMV, and MPEG4 video, and the ability to transcode DivX files for viewing on the device through included Media Converter Software. Other features include an FM radio with 20 presets and a voice recorder."

Those features exceed that of the newly redesigned iPod Nano which lacks voice recording, FM radio, and is more expensive.

"We're once again showing that category-leading technology can still be very affordable,"
SanDisk marketing head Eric Bone said in a statement.

yeah sandisk it's a really good company it's alaways making great stuff at affordable prices like flash cards in general, from my point of view the ipod it's the worst piece of technology that everybody wants (not me) is more of a fashion than the real need ,people who think have other stuff like Sandisk or the Zune or the ZEn people see something else, and they say "But it's not an ipod mom" , yeah it's way better i'd say

Way Cool ! I always like to wait a while after launch to see if any additional features are added like bigger mem capacity or maybe a price drop. I wonder what the storage will top out at on these? .... [img][/img]
