SANDISK has entered into a partnership with YAHOO! MUSIC that involves the implementation of unique music services for SANDISK’s new SANSA CONNECT a WiFi-enabled MP3 player. The partnership pairs SANDISK’s new wireless MP3 player with both free and subscription-based services from YAHOO!, allowing consumers to stay constantly connected to their music, photos and friends via WiFi, with no PC required.
"The SANSA CONNECT is a new breed of music player," said SANDISK SVP/GM DANIEL SCHREIBER. "It untethers consumers from their computers, and allows them to get new music and share their recommendations anytime, anywhere, over an open wireless Internet network."
The announcement coincides with the retail availability of the SANSA CONNECT, which is now available in the UNITED STATES. The device is expected to be available in CANADA in the latter part of 2007.
