SanDisk Introduces Flash Memory MP3 Player With 8GB Capacity
SanDisk Corporation has unveiled the world's largest capacity flash-based MP3 player, the 8GB (gigabyte) Sansa e280, with audio, photo viewing and video clip playback capabilities.

Priced at US$249.99 the e280 is the latest evolution of SanDisk's flagship e200 series. The 8GB device sports a microSD expansion slot allowing expansion to 10GB of music, which the company says is enough to store up to 2,500 songs.

The dimensions of the Sansa e200 are 1.7 in. wide x 3.5 in. long x 0.5 in. high (4.4 cm wide x 8.9 cm long x 1.3 cm high). Screen size is 1.8-inch (4.572 cm) TFT color screen (QCIF+).

In addition to holding thousands of songs, the Sansa e200 includes a range of features to enhance the listening and viewing experience, including an open (non-proprietary) digital rights management system that allows users to purchase songs or access subscription download services from numerous sources

The device also comes with a built-in digital FM tuner, allowing for on-the-fly FM recording, plus a voice recording with a built-in microphone.

The user replaceable and rechargeable Lithium Ion battery can provide up to 20 hours of battery life under certain conditions.

The Sansa e200 series players support Microsoft PlaysForSure so consumers can download and pay for songs individually or download an unlimited amount of music for a flat monthly subscription fee from music stores such as Rhapsody To Go and others.

The player is designed to work seamlessly with a wide range of popular music formats such as MP3 and Windows Media Audio (WMA) in both unprotected and protected files (such as those WMA files purchased from music stores).
