SanDisk to ship low-end colour-screen MP3 player in October

Sansa c200 series unveiled

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

IFA 06 SanDisk today followed up last week's launch of its 8GB Sansa e280 music player with the debut today of the c200 series. The line-up comprises a pair of models: the 1GB c240 and the 2GB c250.

Both players feature a 1.4in, 128 x 98 colour display that's set up for song data and photo shows but not for video. The machines each have an FM radio on board, a microphone for voice recording and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. It plays MP3s, natch, plus WMA and WMA DRM files.

The 1GB model will retail for around $80 (£42), the 2GB player for $100 (£53). Both are set to ship in Europe and the US in October. ®
