Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:56 am

SanDisk introduced the Sansa c200 series, a stylish flash memory-based MP3 player that is loaded with high-end features — such as a bright LCD color screen and a microSD expansion slot — and smashes the $100 price threshold for a 2-gigabyte player.

The c200 is sold in two capacities — 1 gigabyte and 2GB. However, the memory can be expanded with the addition of an optional SanDisk microSD card, which currently is available in capacities of from 256 megabytes to 2GB. For example, with a 2GB microSD card, a user can transform a 2GB player into a 4GB player to hold nearly 2,000 songs (at 64kbps). The c200 supports WMA, MP3 and the protected WMA DRM format that gives consumers the ability to purchase or subscribe to music from most music service providers. Features also include a color screen, FM radio and a voice recorder.

Suggested retail prices are $79.99 for the 1GB unit and $99.99 for the 2GB unit, and the SanDisk c200 is expected to be available from retailers in the U.S. and Europe in October, with other regions following later.
