Default Something 'big' coming from SanDisk

Something 'big' coming from SanDisk, complete with cape

By Sean Hollister posted Mar 20th 2010 10:10AM



Something big is coming March 23rd, and like a good used car salesman, SanDisk has rolled out an inflatable superhero in its honor. What could it be? We honestly have no idea. SanDisk has already introduced 64GB SDXC cards and the G3 SSD, condensed commercial FM into sugary syrup with slotRadio, and generally exploited NAND in every way imaginable. The company's not scheduled to introduce 128GB chips until 2011, and rewritable 3D flash is still years out. That said, SanDisk does have experience in the portable audio/video realm, and that notch on our wide, cape-wearing friend does look awfully familiar... Oh please, no, not another blasted tablet. We jest, of course, but what could a memory manufacturer possibly be planning that warrants such a teaser page?

[Thanks, Steve]

SanDisk

Awesome. I really hope they introduce new Sansa players. Perhaps they will introduce the View II, which will have micro-sd slot, touch screen and 64 GB SSD. Or maybe a Fuse II, which will be square-like, just like how the second clip is more square-like when compared to its original.

Oh the possibilities....

Its so obviously going to be a tablet... Ho boy, their mascot team is at it again too. Although this time they replaced the mayan style cartoonist with a 12 year old 3D artist, who also made the teaser screen with a decade old Animation Shop 3 copy it seems >_< I hope its just a external SSD or something. I mean, I would be thrilled for a new MP3 player too, but not if its released like this! ;D

+1 on that. The EQ on the Clip+ is better than my old Fuze and original Clips were, but it's nowhere near as good as a Samsung or Sony EQ. Luckily, the headphones I have left don't require that much tweaking.

Not that hard to guess that they're probably gonna do at least a PMP (maybe a tablet, but why?), especially with how they emphasize "big" in the teaser.

Sandisk needs to do something more video oriented.
I think it's silly for anyone to try a tablet without having first done a zune hd/itouch/s9-type thing.

Martin, you have exactly 4000 posts. Wow.

Well, my curiosity has been piqued! Wonder who will be the first one on the 23rd to post the revealed device here on abi?

Compared to the other dap's on the market it would still be on the low-priced side.

what's with y'all and the 64gb talk? We haven't even gotten 16 yet, they'll do it in steps. 64gb is 3 generations off.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's a really high capacity ssd, like a 1tb ssd. not that i'd care, considering that a 512gb is $1400, this could be more expensive then the ue38 with 14 armatures

I wouldn't be surprised if it is a 32 GB player with a full sized SDXC card slot.
