SanDisk launches new Sansa Fuze+ which starts under $100

With all the hype surrounding Apple's impending launch of new iPods, it's sometimes easy to forget about some of the the key players in the MP3 player market. One of the big names we haven't heard from in a while is SanDisk, and they're debuting the new Sansa Fuze+ today.

The Sansa Fuze+ is the successor to the older Sansa Fuze and features a completely redesigned body. The player incorporates a 2.4" QVGA LCD; a "film strip" GUI which makes allows quick navigation through photos, music, and video with left/right finger swipes; and FM radio support.

Other features include a microSDHC card slot for expanded storage capacity (SanDisk slotRadio is supported) and a microphone for audio recording. The Sansa Fuze+ can operate for 24 hours straight while playing only audio; that figure drops to five hours when playing video.

“The Sansa Fuze+ is the most versatile portable media player available for under $100,” said Tom Bailey, senior director, AV retail, SanDisk. “We developed an entirely new product to provide consumers with a stylish, affordable device that performs exactly as a sophisticated yet easy to use player should.”

The Sansa Fuze+ is available today in capacities of 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB with MSRPs of $79, $89, and $119 respectively (available colors include red, white, black, blue and purple).

as much as I love these things, in the era of smartphones with 3.5mm headphone jacks and more flash memory than I know what to do with, I really can't justify carrying a separate MP3 player anymore.

Running with a little clip player beats the hell out of having a cell phone with you. Besides, the little clip is so dirt cheap if it got ruined in the rain I wouldn't are much. Now if my phone got ruined in the rain...

Basically for anybody active it's nice to have a separate player. Most of America probably doesn't need one.
