SanDisk reinvents 1980s personal stereo for the noughties

Sansa SlotPlayer to take SlotMusic cards only

Application security programs and practises

SanDisk has continued with plans to replace the CD with the SD, by launching a portable music player based around its pre-loaded Micro SD card notion.

The Sansa SlotMusic Player is designed to take the storage firm’s SlotMusic cards, unveiled last month. Fortunately, it also accepts so-called “self-loaded” Micro SD cards crammed full of your own musical mixtures.

Think of it as the cassette Walkman de nos jours.

SanDisk's Sansa SlotMusic Player: Micro SD cards only

To get things moving, SanDisk’s teamed up with a stream of artists, including Coldplay and girl-kisser Katy Perry, to launch a series of SD cards with the artists’ albums pre-loaded. The Sansa slotMusic Player comes pre-loaded with an album on a 1GB SlotMusic card, but some of the capacity’s consumed by liner notes, album art and content “personally chosen” by the artist.

The storage manufacturer’s even created a range of Sansa SlotMusic Player accessories, which include a card wallet, an armband and “shells” for customising players to your individual taste.

SanDisk will initially release the player into the US for $35 (£20/€26) - each pre-loaded SD card costs $15 (£8.60/€11.06). The player and pre-loaded cards will be shipped into Europe next year, but a UK price hasn’t been recorded yet.
