DailyTech – SanDisk announces several new flash-based MP3 players. I love our iPods, but King County only does WMA format files for audio books. Given that a book costs about $30 even from Audible, just five books would payback.
Look at the options, assuming they aren’t horrible, there is the new Sony Bean (I think it does WMA) and this Sansa. There is a shuffle-like model at is $120 for 1GB and a iPod nano like model that is the 3200 that costs $249 for 4GB. Will have to see if they are easy to use though. It looks nice, but Cnet gave it 8/10 mainly because the mecahnics of the thing aren’t that great.
