MILPITAS, Calif., August 24,
2011-SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader
in flash memory storage solutions, today introduced the Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player, the latest addition
to the popular Sansa®
Clip family. The Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player is perfect for
active music fans looking for a feature-rich, easy-to-use player at
a great value.
"The Sansa Clip family ranks among
the most popular sub-$50 MP3 players in the United States, and now
we've made it even better," said Tom Bailey, senior director, AV
retail, SanDisk. "Our tiny Sansa Clip Zip packs big features that
few other MP3 players in its class can match."
The Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player offers rich sound quality and is
compatible with all major music formats, including the AAC codec
(DRM-free iTunes compatible). The player's new 1.1-inch LCD color
screen offers 83 percent more viewing area than previous models.
Its updated graphical interface displays album art and makes it
easier than ever for consumers to navigate songs.
The Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player offers extra features that consumers
want in an MP3 player, including:
The Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player includes a new stopwatch for timing
laps and an FM radio for tuning into stations at the gym or on the
go. Thinner and lighter than before, the player weighs a little
more than half an ounce (15.8 grams) and is about the same size as
a matchbox (2.25 x 1.42 x 0.58 inches). The compact player features
a durable design that is perfect for hands-free listening.
With up to 15 hours of battery life1, the Sansa Clip
Zip MP3 player lets consumers enjoy music during long trips away
from home while conserving their phone or tablet's battery. The
player slips easily into any piece of luggage or clipped onto a
piece of clothing. It includes a built-in microphone with voice
recording capabilities and uses a micro-USB connector, the popular
charger used for many mobile devices today-so travelers can pack
one less cable.
The Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player comes in capacities of 4GB (storing
up to 1,000 songs3) and 8GB (storing up to 2,000
songs3), carrying MSRPs of $49.99 and $69.99. The player
is available now in the United States and Canada, and will reach
Europe next month.
