SanDisk Sansa Clip 8GB
SanDisk raised the stakes in its competition against the iPod shuffle and Creative ZEN Stone with a new, 8GB version of the Sansa Clip. The capacity gives it storage for up to 2,000 songs and doubles the capacity of Creative's best ultra-small models and quadruple that of Apple's. It continues to hold the same four-line OLED display that lets it have full control over music while still rendering it small enough to attach to a belt or clothes through its namesake hook.
The player is also very close in other respects and lasts for up to 15 hours of Audible, MP3 or WMA audio, It also carries an FM radio and a built-in mic for voice recording in spite of its small profile. SanDisk is selling the 8GB Clip starting this week at $100.
