SanDisk Sansa Connect with ZING

An old co-worker stopped by the office and showed us this Sandisk Sansa Connect MP3 player. It has wifi and connects to open access points and the Yahoo! Music service (formerly Launch). It finds and suggests new music as you rate songs through the Yahoo! interface. Whenever it gets a chance it uses spare cycles to download more songs to the available memory.

The device is probably about the size of an iPod mini but it has a noticeably Sansa feeling to it.

It appears to deliver on its promises so this could prove to be an interesting iPod alternative.
