Update: Now available to pre-order on Amazon.
It has been awhile since we heard anything from the SanDisk Sansa line of MP3 players and we have seen some leaks of the Fuze+ a few weeks ago but today SanDisk announces the Fuze+ with the full fanfare of a landing page on SanDisk.com.
Unlike the Clip+ the Fuze+ appears to be more than an incremental upgrade with an all new UI and industrial design. Coming in 5 different colors and 3 different capacities (4, 8, 16GB) it will also include the SanDisk standard microSD card for an additional 32GB of memory.
We will have the review up soon, but in the mean time SanDisk is already showing off the UI and some it its features in videos embedded below.
