Default Slotradio Player?

Selling a player bundled with music is imo a bad idea, especially when the music is on a card where songs can't be deleted, and the songs can't be copied to a pc to make a custom card with songs that are wanted together with songs from CDs. The player itself might be interesting if Sandisk decides to sell it without the bundled music for $50 or less.

I don't believe in selling any type of music with a player, because not all people have the same music preference. For instance, I am willing to bet most of the music is top 40 garbage, which I detest vehemently.

The fact that is is described as Billboard chart hits.....hell no!
I would much rather have seen a Clip with a microsdhc slot and a 30-hour battery, although I realize that is highly unlikely without making it the size of the Fuze. But, there are people out there with no interest in watching video on a 1.9" screen, and if the Clip's OLED display would be easier on the battery than what the Fuze uses, then bring it on Sansa!

I am no longer interested in the player, as it has a built in battery. I was hoping it would run on a AA or AAA battery and be priced for less. $40 for 1,000 songs that can't be copied to a pc? If the cards would have 500 songs and be priced at under $20, they might be more interesting. The Slotradio cards also play in the Fuze, so there is no reason for this new player.

Is it just me or did Sandisk do this backwards?

Would it not have made more sense to have a version of the Slotplayer with a screen? Who in their right mind would PAY for radio? (especially Billboard manure)

I don't really understand the purpose that is being served here. Slotplayer is $20 this thing is $80 more and you can't choose which songs you want..... what were they thinking about.
