WiFi Radio: The Shape of mp3 Players to Come

One of the first WiFi mp3 players, the Sansa Connect – coming in March.

That’s right. WiFi. As in, radio without a radio.

As tech-hound C|Net, which voted it one of the “Best of CES” puts it….

Noticeably absent is … an FM tuner, though I suppose SanDisk figured you could do without the latter given that you get access to Internet radio? That’s right, Internet radio. Sweet. Where do I sign up?

Still, it’s a little hazy as to whether or not that Internet radio will be free. And that makes a big difference.

Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, the zeal for this product – and the many which will follow in its category – reflects the pent up demand that will certainly materialize as sales, making this product and those like it “hits.”
