SanDisk is gunning for the Apple iPod Shuffle and it’s lookin’ good. The Sansa Express comes out of the corner clobbering with a direct USB connection, OLED display, integrated FM tuner, voice recorder via the built-in microphone, 1GB of internal memory and a microSD slot for expansion.
Battery life is slated at 15 hours and with a $59.99 retail price you can definitely see it being a top contender to Apple’s iPod Shuffle line. The direct connect is a huge plus over the Shuffle and you don’t need to tote around the dock and worry about it breaking.
Sure the Express is bigger, but for the price and memory expansion Apple better watch out.
