SanDisk introduces the Sansa slotMusic Player
SanDisk Corporation has unveiled the Sansa slotMusic Player, saying it is the easiest MP3 player for loading and listening to music on the go.

The plug & play, portable music player was designed for use with the new slotMusic cards available today in the United States. In addition to the Sansa-branded player, SanDisk has created personalized, branded slotMusic players for popular artists such as Robin Thicke and ABBA.

slotMusic Players will be available in the coming days at U.S. stores, including Best Buy and Wal-Mart with a suggested price of US$19.99.

The Sansa slotMusic Player was made to play slotMusic card albums or a self-loaded microSD card full of music. The player doesn’t require a PC, Internet or any time spent managing music. Consumers simply choose their slotMusic or music-filled microSD card, pop it into the device and will be enjoying their favorite tunes in seconds.

The artist-branded version of the slotMusic Player is an all-in-one package, which includes both the slotMusic card and a player bearing their favorite artist’s name and image. The branded player comes pre-loaded with an album on a 1GB slotMusic card. Additional content on the card may include liner notes, album art and other one-of-a-kind content personally chosen by the artist. Artist-branded slotMusic players will retail for US$34.99.

Announced last month, slotMusic is a new format of high-fidelity, DRM-free MP3 music on a microSD card, which gives consumers the ability to easily listen to and quickly swap their favorite songs among a mobile phone, personal computer, and any MP3 player with a microSD slot.

These slotMusic cards are available this month will feature nearly 40 of the biggest names in music from all four major music labels: EMI Music, SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT, Universal Music Group, and Warner Music Group. Artists on slotMusic cards include Robin Thicke, Katy Perry and Coldplay.

The small device can easily be tucked in a pocket or purse, with a weight of a little over two ounces and dimensions of 2.75” W x 1.4375” H x 1.4375” D.

In addition to slotMusic cards, this convenient MP3 player can play songs from any microSD card with music encoded as MP3 and WMA (DRM-free only) files.
