SanDisk slotRadio player

It might not be coming to the UK anytime soon, but that hasn't stopped us getting our mits on the latest MP3 player released by SanDisk at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The new player will come with 1000 tracks that you buy in a pack for $40.

There's rock, contemporary, country, "and others" organised into themes such as "chillout", and "workout", however interestingly due to limitations in the technology you won't be able to skip back only forward through the tracks.

The player itself is made of die-cast aluminium, gets a 1.5-inch OLED screen, a belt clip and FM radio, presumably for when the 1000 songs get old.

The slotRadio player is priced at $99.99 - including the 1000 song card - with genre-specific and themed slotRadio cards due to be sold separately at $39.99.
