New MP3 players start at $80

Following up on the launch of the 8GB version of its Sansa e200 Series, Sandisk has unveiled its new Sansa c200 Series entry-level MP3 players. The Sansa c200 Series is the follow-up to the Sansa c100 Series MP3 players first introduced in January of this year.

The 1.3” x 3.1” x .6” players weigh just 1.51 ounces with battery and feature a 1.4" color screen, a microSD slot for expansion, an FM tuner/recorder, voice recorder and a user-replaceable battery good for up to 15 hours of playback. Supported audio formats include MP3, WMA and protected WMA DRM.

Sandisk is aggressive with pricing as 1GB Sansa c240 and 2GB Sansa c250 players will retail for $80 and $100 respectively. The Sandisk empire continues to grow

I really think MS should have put some weight behind Sandisk as I think their product line has really shone recently. This is most certainly a Shuffle killer. I think they need a more catchy product line name though. Sansa doesnt ring bells like iPod does.

One thing I dont like is that they have to create a new flash container every 6 months. microSd? Whats next, nanoSD, picoSD? Make the carts any smaller and they would blow away.

Definately agree about this being a shuffle killer. It's silly that the 2 GB versio is only $20 more. It's about time for Apple to update the shuffle, as the current models are now quite old. I have a 512 MB shuffle, which I use all the time, both for music, and as a general memory stick.

Doubt it's gonna be a shuffle killer. Shuffle is not exactly a top notch player anyway. People buy it because it's Apple. Sansa could do much better if it had better software. I own old Sansa 100... what a nightmare. They could not fix notorious bugs in a year. Sansa users heard only promises and one minor bug fix since original release.
