CES 2009: Sansa slotRadio – 1000 "hand-picked" songs, you'll hate 95% of em

sandisk-slotRadio.jpgI’m developing a bit of a love/hate relationship with Sandisk. They swing wildly from releasing great, innovative stuff, to wasting plastic on awful products. Unfortunately slotRadio falls into the latter category.

Sansa slotRadio is an MP3 player that comes with 1000 songs pre-loaded. It’s essentially a music player for people who’ve got absolutely no interest in what music playing, as long as there’s something in the background. The songs come on a Sandisk microSD card, but they’re tied to the card with DRM, so you can’t do anything else with them. If you work your way through the thousand, then you can buy 1,000 more for $40 (£26).

My advice? Save your cash and stick to Last.fm. In the meantime, go check out our other CES coverage here.
