No, I’m not kidding. SanDisk is playing For Real.
One of the new players is the Sansa Clip. The Clip is aimed squarely at same market niche as the Shuffle, which has one gigabyte of storage capacity and retails for $79. The Clip is larger, but costs half as much, has the same storage capacity and includes features not available on the Shuffle, including a small screen to display song titles, an FM radio and a built-in microphone. A two-gigabyte version will be available as well for $60, still nearly $20 less than the Shuffle.
Flash is SanDisk’s natural forte. As a leading manufacturer of the chips, the company enjoys cost advantages over rivals. And because the SanDisk brand was already associated with memory cards and USB devices, it wasn’t a great leap for customers to accept a flash music player from the same company.
The Foleo likes Flash, SanDisk. Think. About. That.
The SansaBook. Has a nice ring to it…
