SanDisk targets iPod Shuffle with Clip music player

Security for virtualized datacentres

SanDisk's new Sansa Clip may lack the iPod Shuffle's cool metal casing, but this diminutive digital music player does pack an OLED screen, a mic and an FM radio, all missing from the Apple product.

The Clip will come with a choice of 1GB or 2GB song storage, and in a variety of colours: black, pink, red and blue. The player supports MP3, Audible, WMA and WMA DRM music formats, and will keep pumping them out for up to 15 hours on a single charge of its rechargeable battery, SanDisk claimed.
