RealNetworks & SanDisk Team Up to Release the Sansa Rhapsody

sandisk sansa e200 main RealNetworks & SanDisk Team Up to Release the Sansa Rhapsody

In a move that further fragments the DRM market space, RealNetworks and SanDisk will release a version of the e200 series dubbed the Sansa Rhapsody. This player will be identical to the e200 series but will come preloaded with pop music and feature RealNetworks’ very own DRM technology. The player will also include Microsoft’s PlaysForSure DRM in the event that you want to use other music services. If you currently own an e200 it will be likely that you can simply upgrade your firmware to take advantage of the new Rhapsody DRM. There is no official release date but the press release states that it will be available in time for the holidays.
