The update to the c100 appropriately named the c200 series is SanDisk’s latest small flash based MP3 player. The c200 is available in two sizes 1GB (c240) and 2GB (c250). The player sports a 1.4” 64k color screen, FM radio, FM and voice recording, removable battery, and uniquely, a microSD memory slot for the addition of up to 2 more gigabytes of memory. Audio playback supports all of your vanilla formats like MP3, WMA, and WAV files. The c200 is compatible with DRM PlaysForSure music services like Urge, Napster, and Yahoo!. The player is not high-end but does offer a nice set of features for the money.
Next month, SanDisk will start selling its new c200 series of flash-based digital audio players. The 1GB c240 ($80) and 2GB c250 ($100) both sport a 1.4″ 64K-color LCD for viewing album art and photos, digital FM tuner with 20 preset stations, FM and voice recorder, removable battery, and microSD expansion card slot. Like its predecessor, the c200s support MP3, WAV, WMA, and WMA-DRM files. Nothing too thrilling, but we’d probably still stand in line to get one.

The SanDisk Sansa e200 series includes the e250, e260, and e270. The 2GB, 4GB, and 6GB are a new breed of high capacity flash based MP3 player set to compete in features, as well as price, with the Samsung Z5 and iPod Nano. The Sansa e200 has a few advantages over the two, such as a brilliant 1.8” screen, video playback, expandable memory, and a user replaceable batter.
SanDisk, seemingly out of nowhere, has come up with something to shake up the portable audio market. They will be an interesting competitor to watch.
