Default Sandisk Clip Sport Plus w\ Bluetooth!

After seeing a short clip on Youtube I've been wondering if a Bluetooth Clip was actually coming to market. It has according to a post on the sandisk foums it's exclusive to to BestBuy until Q1 2017. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sandisk-...?skuId=5508200

The specs aren't overly impressive.

Offers ample space for storing media.
Compact design

Measures just 2.6" thin and weighs only 1.34 oz. so you can take it wherever you go.

So you can listen to your favorite tunes while you swim (do not use in salt water, since it is highly corrosive).

They're still enough that it seems to be an alternative for those that want an iPod Shuffle type DAP with Bluetooth. My Shuffle's battery life has dropped enough that I'm thinking about getting one to see if the Clip Sport Plus will be a decent replacement.

The Support info page at Sandisk is here The 1.10 firmware download and installation directions are here.

The supported file types page has a note that I hadn't seen about AAC (m4a) files.

AAC / M4A (Files up to 15 mins in length)
About time they cut the BS and admitted their AAC decoder has issues.
