SanDisk Sansa Clip+ Digital Audio Player
its slotMusic concept – SanDisk's slotMusic being an 'innovative'
new physical music format which basically boils down to loading microSD
cards with music – but that's seemingly not going to see them
dropping the format any time soon thanks to the release of their new
digital audio player known as the SanDisk Sansa Clip+ which touts both
SanDisk's slotMusic and slotRadio functionality.
Apart from offering up a microSD card slot allowing end users to insert
slotMusic and slotRadio cards Sandisk's new Sansa Series DAP which
happens to be the first Windows 7 certified MP3 player is, according to
their own press, aimed specifically at 'budget and time-conscious music
fans looking for the best MP3 player for the money' which in turn means
that as well as being competitively priced you'll find yourself reeling
in your expectations somewhat – which is just as well as the Clip+
hardly excites in terms of features and specifications though it's by no
means overtly humdrum.
The Sansa Clip+, which is set to become available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB
capacity variants, comes with a 1 single color (blue) OLED display
which SanDisk interestingly tout as being 'large' (we suspect they mean
proportionately) whilst in terms of audio file format support you're
looking at MP3, WMA, WAV, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis and Audible being duly
accounted for (and its nice to see Ogg represented, as always). On top
of that you can factor in an equalizer, onboard FM radio tuner and, yes,
there's even an integrated microphone allowing you to capture voice
memos, lectures, etc.
