Sandisk working on touchscreen MP3 player?

updated 06:00 pm EST, Wed March 4, 2009

Sansa Tap trademark found

Sandisk has recently trademarked the Sansa Tap name, suggesting the company is working on a touchscreen MP3 player, according to a DAPReview report on Monday. While there is no other information to go on regarding the nature of the possible device, the existence of competition making touch-based devices, the name, and a perceived consensus on high demand for the players points to Sansa Tap as likely referring to touchscreen displays.

The application was filed back in October, and has now been open for challenges and disputes of the trademark from other companies and individuals since Tuesday. It's not known if or how soon SanDisk would act on the trademark by releasing a shipping product.
