SLOTMUSIC cards are now shipping with nearly 40 top artists available including COLDPLAY, WEEZER, RHIANNA, ABBA, ROBIN THICKE and more.
The world’s four largest music companies and SANDISK CORPORATION, have unveiled the full list of artists joining the inaugural SLOTMUSIC lineup. Within days of shipping, SLOTMUSIC cards will arrive on the shelves of BEST BUY and WAL-MART in the UNITED STATES, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $14.99.
"This is a big deal," said BIG HASSEL's JIM MERLIS and JIM WALSH, "It's the first time the major labels and retailers have unanimously embraced a new physical format in over 25 years. These cards play in 70 million phones in the U.S. and a billion devices worldwide. Imagine if there were that many CD players in 1982."
