SanDisk upgrades Clip music player

Well, just about...

SanDisk Sansa Clip

SanDisk has updated is Sansa Clip music player ahead of Apple's anticipated iPod revamp next week.

Now dubbed the Clip+, the differences appear primarily cosmetic. Still small, the Clip+ sports a phone-style navpad control in place of the rotating wheel its predecessor used.

Once again, it supports Ogg files as well as MP3, WMA, WAV and Flac.

SanDisk's Sansa Clip+ : now with a different control array

The Clip+ has a 1in OLED screen, as before, and packs in an FM radio and a microphone. It'll come in 4GB and 8GB versions, but the player contains a Micro SD card slot that can take SanDisk's SlotRadio and SlotMusic pre-loaded cards as well as vanilla memory cards with your own content.

SanDisk claimed the lithium-ion battery within the Clip+ will be good for up to 15 hours' music playback.

The 4GB models - all available in a variety of colours - will cost $40 (£20/€27) in the US, while the 8GB version will come in at $70 (£34/€48). UK-specific prices have not been disclosed. ®
