Hi there, I'm a customer who have used Sansa Clip Sport for over two months now. Honestly, when I chose Sansa Clip Sport, I was affected by the Sansa Clip Zip's performance, so I order it right away. But it has been released for a long dmn time now, and there are tons of bugs in my device. Comparing to the Sansa Clip Zip, which have a following firmware very early to fix its problem, why there is still no firmware for the Sport yet?

Being worked on; perhaps later this month.
Please note, though--the Sport never will have the capabilities of the earlier Zip and Clip+, apart from a superior battey capacity. It is a limited player.

So i asked if its limited by hardware and / or firmware and i got an "yes" for the answer...
So the "limits" are that SanDisk does not want to put more effort into the firmware because their skills are limited? Sorry, i dont get it.
Probably iam a limited person - firmware wise, i mean.

I don't know that the above is the case, but the fact remains that the internals of the Sport are different from the earlier Clips, imposing limitations on operation. Sigh.

It still seems to me that if this was the case, why release the Clip Sport in the first place? Keep making Clip + and Clip Zip, and forget about developing something else.

Yep, a very good question indeed.
One thing I noticed in the Sunday paper is that Best Buy was advertising the Sport (and not the other Clips). It made me wonder if a store like that requires the introduction of new models, even if limited in scope, to try to spur sales.
