    Microsoft does offer limited WiFi capabilities with their Zune, but SanDisk is now joining the frey, SanDisks's new Sansa Connect doesn't have the sharing features of the Microsoft Zune, but it does allow users to connect directly to the Internet via a wireless hot spot to download music or distribute photos. No PC is needed to accomplish these tasks. The Sansa Connect has 4GB of internal storage as well as a microSD slot. A 2.2-inch color screen an internal speaker round up the entire package. The Sansa Connect will be available in retail store in late March for $249.99.

    Pretty sad that Sandisk can throw together more solid mp3 players than Microsoft.

    hrm, not in my opinion. sandisk has been making great products for years. they have taken a much more aggressive stance on increasing business in recent years which you are starting to see now.

    I own their E250 mp3 player and I highly satisfied with that, everytime I show it to somone they love it. I wanna see this one from different angles though.

    The Zune is MSs first MP3 player, and it is very solid indeed. You should check them out.

    Actually, its awesome. Being just an mp3 player, you can bypass your computer to download stuff. I love it.
