No new player out yet?

I hope there will be one released in a few days.

I predict it will be called the Sansa View Zip+ :laughing:

I predict it will be called . . . nothing. :cry:

Perhaps something might appear over the weekend, or perhaps next week? Some might even be satisfied if the original Fuze is resurrected, especially if it becomes available with 16GB or 32GB built in.

Looks like we get a couple new colors for the Clip+.:neutral_face:

If they give it Clip+ buttons and more space, then sure, that would be nice…if it still has the scrollwheel, nope.

That might not be the whole story though, just a teaser. Do those new Clip+ players have more than 8GB built in?

Perhaps Sandisk is learning that if a player sells well, it shouldn’t be automatically discontinued after two years, and I hope they also learn that if a player is a disaster and can’t be easily fixed, they don’t have to keep trying to sell it for two years. Perhaps they might even learn to diversify their releases, and not just release one new player a year. One style(or two)  doesn’t fit all for clothing or mp3 players.

I don’t know…I’m not on Facebook so I can only see just what is there on that front page. Maybe a Facebook member could find out more?

From the SanDisk Facebook page:

Oh boy, just what I’ve been waiting for! Now I can get a Clip+ to match the color of the Gatorade I drink when I ride my bike!

:confounded:

In the words of the musical “Chicago,” give 'em the old razzle-dazzle . . . and they’ll never get wise. :wink:

I thought that was Obama’s campaign mantra.

:laughing:

Actually, I think that’s Mitt’s catchphrase (and that of the Republican party)–for the President and the Dems, it would be, “give 'em the _ new _ razzle-dazzle . . . .”  ;)

I wonder if Sandisk will release a new player tonight at midnight EST. Corporations often do things like that, releasing a new product exactly at the start of a new month. If they don’t release a new player by Wednesday, I will give up hope about seeing one soon, and start considering a player of another brand.

I already have.

Sept. and October also are prime months for the Fall season and, beyond that, the end-of-year holidays.

You would think if they were going to announce a player they’d want to do  it before the Apple refresh…which allegedly will be Sept. 12.

 

My suspicion is that they’re selling enough Clip+ and Clip Zip that they’ve decided not to bother doing anything else.  If anyone can prove me wrong, feel free to do so! 

I think you may be right.  But then again, things have been quiet recently . . . .

They’re just resting on their laurels after the resoundng success of the Fuze+.
