The Sansa Clip has sold beyond all expectations and SanDisk’s willingness to listen to users when it comes to adding features have made it a really good choice for an MP3 player. The one gripe people have had with it is lack of storage as even though it has a bigger brother (the Fuze) capable of both 8GB capacities and microSD expansion, the Clip itself has maxed out at 4GB…until now.
A French store selling all versions of the Clip has a posting of a 8GB clip available in both black and silver like the 4GB version. It’s currently listed as a pre-order with unknown release date for the black version and a September 30th release date for the silver version, which happens to be tomorrow. While it’s unlikely it will come out tomorrow it does appear to be legit; the price of about 90 Euro is far higher than that of the 65 Euro 4GB version and so it’s doubtful it’s a typo. If it turns out to be true this should make a lot of people happy, me included.
