SanDisk announces the Sansa slotMusic players, we wonder why

Today, SanDisk announced the Sansa slotMusic player, which it claims is the easiest MP3 player for “loading and listening to music on the go.” The slotMusic microSD cards were announced in September and today we see a $20 music player to play said microSD cards.

Most of us are carrying cell phones with microSD slots with some archaic MP3 player built-in, so the cards themselves seem to make sense, but who wants to spend another $20 on a player that comes with craptacular headphones? Maybe the artist-branded ABBA or Robin Thicke slotMusic players will be enticing enough to spend $35 on. Yeah, I didn’t think so. No wonder Samsung wants to purchase SanDisk .
