SanDisk device to come with Yahoo MusicApril 10, 2007
Flash memory maker SanDisk has announced it will pair its new wireless music player with free and subscription music services from Yahoo.
Sansa Connect device will be able to use a Wi-Fi wireless connection to allow users to listen to LAUNCHcast Internet radio, browse Flickr photos and see what Yahoo Messenger friends and other Sansa Connect owners nearby are listening to. LAUNCHcast and Flickr are both part of the Yahoo network.
Sansa Connect users with a Yahoo Music Unlimited To Go subscription can also download music and listen to or download tracks their friends are listening to or have recommended.
When the 4-gigabyte Sansa Connect is not connected to a Wi-Fi network, the player behaves like a traditional Flash music player and can be connected to a personal computer. Users can play music and view photos stored either on the player or on an optional microSD card.
