SanDisk Corporation unveiled its latest range of MP3 players at CES 2007, spearheaded by the innovative WiFi-enabled Sansa Connect.
SanDisk claims the Sansa Connect enables users to download music and view photos online through any open wireless internet connection.
Designed to work with premium Internet services, the flash-based MP3 player also boasts ‘community' features for recommending music and photos online, in addition to a "live" Wi-Fi connection.
"The Sansa Connect is a new music experience focused on convenience," said Eric Bone, product marketing director for SanDisk's audio and video line. "If you're listening to new songs from a music service and find ones you want to keep, you can bring them into your library and don't have to wait until you get back to your PC. If you want to tell your friends about your discoveries, the Sansa Connect will also allow you to share music suggestions over the Web."
SanDisk claims the Sansa Connect provides superior sound playback (equivalent to SanDisk's award-winning Sansa e200 line) and is equipped with a microSD card slot. The expansion slot adds additional storage capacity as well as portability of music to other devices.
Other features include a large, 2.2-inch TFT colour screen, backlit controls, a lithium-ion battery, and a multi-pin universal connector for ‘Made for Sansa' accessory upgrades, battery charging and USB 2.0 connectivity.
