The Sansa View widescreen portable media player
SanDisk goes after the portable video market with its first widescreen portable media player

In addition to the Sansa Connect and USBTV, SanDisk also introduced at CES its first widescreen portable media player dubbed the Sansa View. The Sansa View features a 4”widescreen display and can play videos, display photos (up to 16 megapixels), play music, or even combine the two in a slideshow format. The player also comes equipped with an integrated speaker for watching and listening to content.

“SanDisk is excited to unveil its first portable media device with remarkably rich video capabilities,” said Le Tran, SanDisk retail product marketing manager for the Sansa View. “The Sansa View is a sturdy, easy-to-use media player perfect for the road warrior or family looking for a video player that they all can enjoy.”

The Sansa View measures at 78.5mm x 123mm x 16.9mm (0.66” thick) and has 8GB of internal flash memory plus the option to add more with its SD memory expansion slot allows for additional memory capacity. It can output content to a TV screen through a 30-pin connector (up to 1080i with docking station) for video and a 3.5mm headphone jack for audio.

The Sansa View video player works with Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for syncing of content, and is said to work with most download and music subscription services, including Rhapsody, MTV Urge and Yahoo! Music.

The player contains a removable Li-Polymer battery that provides up to four hours of continuous video playback and 10 hours of continuous audio playback. A user-replaceable Li-Polymer battery — along with an extended-life battery — will be sold separately.

Retailing for $299 MSRP, the 8GB Sansa View is expected to be available from retailers in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2007, with Canada and Europe to follow in the second quarter.
