SanDisk, the flash memory manufacturer, has announced a new mini music player called the Sansa c200.
The Sansa c200 , available in the U.S. and Europe this October, will come in 1GB ($79.99) and 2GB ($99.99) capacities. The music player is 1.3 by 3.1 by 0.6 inches and weighs about 1.51 ounces, according to SanDisk.
The c200 also has a slot for SanDisk microSD storage cards, making its capacity expandable. Currently, the largest SanDisk microSD card available is a 2 GB, according to the company. That gives the two mini models the potential to become 3GB and 4GB music players.
In addition to more storage, the expansion option gives listeners the ability to rotate which songs they have stored on their music player at any given time.
Like other Sansa music players, the c200 has an FM tuner/recorder, a voice recorder, and supports WMA, MP3 and WMA DRM music files. It can also display photos and album art.
Oh, and unlike some other music players, the Sansa c200 has a lithium battery that the owner can replace on his or her own, should the need arise.
The release follows SanDisk's August unveiling of an 8GB music player, and an announcement of price drops for its existing models.
