Sandisk has claimed its new flash memory digital audio player, Sansa e280, to be the largest capacity flash-based personal music player on the market that comes festooned with a 8GB memory, a micro-SD slot for storage expansion upto 10 GB and a FM tuner. Sandisk’s Sansa e280 boasts 1.8-inch color LCD display, a play time of upto 20 hours and USB 2.0 connectivity. Unfortunately, it could not match the iPod nano in terms of thickness as it has double the size of iPod nano i.e. 1.7 x 3.5 x 0.5 inches. The Sansa e280 is likely to arrive in the middle of September with a retail price of around $249.99.
One more flash player has plunged into the market without any hustle and bustle. Nothing innovative in its approach, the new Philips GoGear SA1335 is pretty modish and sleek design-wise. You can listen to your favorite tracks on the move as the SA1335 comes with 12 hours back up for MP3, WAV, or WMA. Other key features include large OLED display, FM tuner, voice recording and USB 2.0 connectivity for faster music transfer. The most eye-pleasing thing to me about the new Philips GoGear SA1335 is that it packs all these features in a compact and sleek size of 3.17 x 1.24 x 0.59 inches. The graceful mirrored surface is attention-grabbing. The flash media player is priced at a reasonable price of about $100.

In addition if you go foe an upgrade, you could even be able to play games. The looks are good. The specs are good. And, the price is alluring.
Another product launched keeping in mind the sports enthusiasts who can not leave their music behind but do not like the idea of destroying their player in sports crashes.

The Freestyle MP3 is waterproof and can be attached to helmet and its 40 hours battery (chargeable through PC) support means you can run out of energy but not music.
