SanDisk has announced the new Sansa View portable media player which plays video, MP3 music and photos. It may not dislodge the iPod anytime soon, but it sure is a good alternative.

Priced at $150 for the 8GB model and $200 for the 16GB version, the Sansa View features a backlit scroll wheel and a 2.4-inch widescreen display plus an FM radio and voice recording.

It packs it all in a slim, thin and lightweight design, measuring only 8.8mm at the slimmest part. One outstanding feature that Sansa View can really boast of is its flash-based storage, SanDisk being a pioneer in the industry.

Most video formats are supported via the embedded player functionality (H.264, WMV and MPEG4), or via a one-time software download of the Sansa Media Converter which quickly converts various video files, including DivX.
