SanDisk Sansa Engineering and Marketing team called me up and asked for my opinions on what the Second Generation Fuze should look like.
Street Price target: $150
LCD screen: Approx: 2.25"
Battery: Replaceable, slides in like a memory card or battery on a small digital camera, so you could take one or two extras on longer trips. Should run about $25 each.
Formats/codecs: Flac and ogg enabled for those who are so inclined.
On board memory: Flagship model would be 16 gb.
Accessory memory: micro SDHC
Playlists would draw from on-board memory AND card memory
GoList limit of 100 songs but 5 GoLists for on-the-fly editing would be available.
Codecs on-board for JPG, AVI and mpeg files to be dragged-and-dropped directly. No more Sansa Media Converter.
Navigate by ID tags or Folder List.
Thanks Sansa Santa.
