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.
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.”
