Flash memory and MP3 player giant SanDisk has announced the upcoming launch of its innovative Sansa Shaker MP3 player, which has been designed for children, particularly tweens.
The Sansa Shaker features numerous ways for consumers to listen to and share songs, including two headphone jacks, a built-in speaker, and the ability to play SD cards. In addition, owners can either shake the device to jump to another song, or use a controller band to move forward and back through their song library.
The MP3 player will be available in pink and blue, and comes equipped with a USB cable, lanyard, five pre-loaded songs, and a colorful array of stickers so that children can customize their device.
It includes an AAA battery that allows up to 15 hours of battery life when using a single pair of headphones. It also comes with a 512MB SD flash memory card, which can hold up to 125 MP3s.
The Shaker is expected to be available in the US in late April, at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $39.99, with availability planned in other parts of the world later this year.
