Early reviews on SanDisk-Yahoo MP3 player good

Yahoo announced the SanDisk Sansa Connect--a new Wi-Fi-enabled portable MP3 player loaded with a bevy of Yahoo services such as Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Music and Flickr--and the early reviews are good.  From our review: Price: The player (gallery at right) carries an MSRP of $250, which is slightly high for a 4GB device, but it's not unreasonable to pay a bit more for advanced technology.

Yahoo announced the SanDisk Sansa Connect--a new Wi-Fi-enabled portable MP3 player loaded with a bevy of Yahoo services such as Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Music and Flickr--and the early reviews are good. 

From our review:

Price:

The player (gallery at right) carries an MSRP of $250, which is slightly high for a 4GB device, but it's not unreasonable to pay a bit more for advanced technology. Plus, you can always add more memory via the built-in microSD slot--we certainly can't complain about expandable memory. We also can't complain about the player's design and interface. It's a slick little player with a nice-feeling black enclosure and a cute, stubby antenna poking out of the top, rather like that of a portable satellite radio device. The 2.2-inch screen is nice and bright with good color saturation, and the icon-driven menus are fun and easy to navigate.

Controls:

The Connect's controls complement the interface nicely. Below the screen is a tactile scroll wheel, which can be clicked in four directions as well: up activates the home function, pulling up the main menu wheel at the bottom of the screen; down starts and stops playback; and right/left serve to shuttle between menu levels and tracks.

Wi-Fi:

We're still having issues hopping onto the local free Wi-Fi, but we hope to work it out with some more communication with SanDisk.
