Amazon recently leaked pictures and stats of the upcoming Sansa Fuze- a cute little DAP with loads of features. These features include a 1.9 inch colour screen, 4 GB of memory, microSDHC support, MP3/WMA/MPEG-4 support, a voice record, an FM tuner, and availability in black, pink, red, and possible many more colours! Allegedly, the Sansa Fuze will have a battery life of 24 hours for audio playback and 5 hours for video playback. Even more impressive, the Sansa Fuze had a list price of only $99! That’s right: $99 will buy you a 4 GB Sansa Fuze, while it will cost you $150 for an iPod Nano (which lacks an FM tuner or voice recorder). So, keep your eyes out for the Sansa Fuze in the upcoming months; it’s a deal you definitely don’t want to miss out on.
So, SanDisk has returned with the Sansa View- a widescreen, flash based media player that is the successor to the Sansa e200. The Sansa View has storage up to 16 GB, is thinner than the e200 (8.8mm thin), supports MPEG4/WMV/h.264), has better resolution (320 x 240 pixels), has a bigger screen size (2.4 inches), and also sports a new clickwheel. If that’s not enough for you, the Sansa View also has a built in FM tuner, a microSD card slot (up to 8 GB), MP3/WMA/WAV audio support, and 30 hour audio/ 6 hour video battery life. The 8 GB Sansa View will set you back $149, and the 16 GB Sansa View will cost $199 when they launch early next month.
Oh, it’s on. Sansa just announced the adorably small Clip mp3 player that will be marketed at those who would normally buy the iPod shuffle. The Sansa Clip has an OLED screen, FM support, FM and voice recording, and MP3/WMA support. It’s available in 1 or 2 GB, which will cost you a thrifty $40 or $80 respectively. Look for the Clip to launch sometime in September.

The Sansa Shaker has an impressive 15 hours of battery life. Available in pink or blue, the Sansa Shaker Mp3 player comes with a USB cable, 5 preloaded songs, and customizable stickers. The Sansa Shaker comes with a 512 mb flash SD card, but the SD card can be switched out for SD cards of greater capacity. Sansa’s Shaker will be available in late April, with an estimated price of $39.99.
