Sansa View PMP

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.
