(Update: SanDisk sent out a press release announcing the Sansa Fuze this morning, discovered by Engadget. It offers a few more details, such as three sizes--2GB ($80) and 8GB ($130), as well as the previously noted 4GB ($100)--and a listing of compatible subscription services. The Fuze is scheduled to ship in April, in the various colors pictured above.)
Someone at Amazon apparently goofed by jumping the gun on SanDisk's latest media player. The "Sansa Fuze," which had already been leaked a week earlier, made a brief appearance on an Amazon listing that now comes up as a broken link, at least as of late last night. It didn't come up on a search either.
DAP Review had earlier reported finding the Fuze while browsing the e-tailer, saying that "it looks a lot like the love child of theand the . It definitely appears to be designed as a 3G iPod Nano competitor." A 4GB version was listed for $99.99
Specs remained scarce, but the player apparently has a 1.9-inch display, microSDHC memory card slot, FM tuner, and voice recorder, while claiming battery power of 24 hours for music and 5 for video. We're just happy they didn't combine it with the "" as well.
