Default SanDisk Sansa Ultima

The all new SanDisk ultima.
The Sansa Ultima is the newest addition to SanDisk's MP3-Player range, the first one of the current series to be kept in smooth snow white. Allready from just looking at it, you can tell that this is a device of the newest generation which will still be comparable to MP3-Players in a view years time. It's offers a huge 3.2'' inch screen with an extremly high resolution to enjoy your video clips and pictures even more. On the top right hand side the device also includes a slot for microSD/SDHC cards, for people who just can't get enough media on their Ultima. Then, if you slowly turn the Ultima because you're wondering why there is a capture button is there for, comes the real surprise: A camera! Obviously it cannot offer optical zoom, but still it gives sharpness to pictures, of what most current mobile phones can only dream of. Also take notice of the integrated speaker and the fact that the back is in a nice grey tone, which goes perfectly with the white from the front. That the Ultima doesn't feature a touch display clearly states, that the SanDisk designers don't just want to follow the ideas of other people, but that they want to define themselves what they think should be the future of portable media playing devices.

This feature is preinstalled on device software, so there's no need to have to crack or hack or do anything to your Ultima to enable it.

|Microphone|: To support the VoIP feature even further, the integrated microphone on the Ultima is now found on the bottom of the device, so to do calls you can simply hold the Ultima to your ear, just like any other phone. In addtion to that, you can oof course also do voice recording or whatever with the same mic.

|Storage|: Allthough the Ultima allready offers a massive 32 GB of flash memory, people who insist on having even more media on their Ultima, get to take advantage of the integrated microSD/HCSD slot on the top right hand side of the device. This feature comes in handy, when you for instance want to quickly exchange media from your mobile phone or high end digital camera with your Ultima.
