Sansa to Apple: Clip this!

Sansa is attempting to lure buyers away from the tasty Apples with its answer to the iPod Shuffle.

I've got the key, I've got the Sansa-aa-aa.

Sansa is attempting to lure buyers away from the tasty Apples with its answer to the iPod Shuffle.

If you're sick of hearing about all the brand spankin' portable audio offerings from Apple, SanDisk is ready and willing to bash your ear about its latest MP3 release. The Sansa Clip was introduced to the world yesterday, and its makers reckon it can take on the iPod Shuffle.

In terms of features, the Clip is the definite frontrunner. The player boasts an FM radio with recorder, microphone and an "I remember those from three years ago" black-and-blue OLED screen. Looks like this guy is pitched at those who see the Shuffle as a style-over-substance simpleton.

As you might expect, the Clip ships with a detachable belt clip that allows you to wear the device anywhere on your bod. MP3 player as clippable accessory: sound familiar?

The Sansa Clip is set to hit Australia in October and will be available in 1GB (AU$79) and 2GB (AU$119) capacities.
