SanDisk's Sansa View gets bumped to 32GB

SanDisk Sansa View gives huge capacity.


It's official: Flash MP3 players are taking over. SanDisk has just announced a new version of the Sansa with 32GB of built-in flash memory. Ah, it makes me nostalgic--remember the days of 30GB hard-drive MP3 players? Oh, right, those still exist. The player isn't far off, either: the expected launch date is in February of this year. SanDisk will also be releasing a 12GB microSD card later in 2008, meaning you could end up with a whopping 44GB capacity all told. In true SanDisk style, the new View is priced to sell at $349. It's still not as good of a value on a dollar per gigabyte basis compared to hard drive memory, but at least it's getting closer. Here's a refresher on the player's specs:

  • 2.4-inch color LCD with landscape mode
  • Photo and video support
  • MicroSD slot capable of accepting SDHC cards
  • FM radio and voice recorder
  • Separate podcast sorting
  • Supports AAC, Audible and WMA subscriptions
  • Windows and Mac compatibility
  • Tested battery life of 32.3 hours
