SanDisk wasted no time in announcing the new Sansa Fuze MP3 player after it was accidentally leaked by Amazon this past weekend. The stylish music player is loaded with capabilities and features to keep consumers well entertained while on the go. Not only is it easy on the eye, it’s easy on the pocketbook.
The Sansa Fuze will be shorter than the Sansa View and will come in capacities of 2, 4 or 8GB. It will also come with a 1.9-inch colour screen that supports both portrait and landscape orientations, an FM tuner, a voice recorder, and support for the MP3, WAV, Audible and WMA audio formats and MPEG-4 video and JPEG photo formats. It will be offered in pink, red, blue, black and silver.
Its most interesting feature though may be its microSDHC expansion slot.
This memory slot provides consumers the ability to quickly add content onto their device and expands storage capacity, giving ample space for thousands of additional songs, hours of video and numerous photos. Plus, by using a SanDisk microSD card, users can easily carry their music and other content from their Sansa MP3 player to their mobile phone, or even their PC.
In the United States, the SanDisk Sansa Fuze is expected to go on sale in April, starting at USD$79.99 for the 2GB model. The 4GB model will sell for USD$99.99 and the 8GB for USD$129.99. It should get released in Canada and Europe in late spring, with other regions of the world to follow.
