Sansa e280 MP3 Player
Although some Apple disciples would argue that it’s an iPod world and we all just live in it, those adventurous souls willing to venture outside the iPod realm will be pleasantly surprised by this new MP3 player from SanDisk, which, at 8GB, is currently the largest capacity MP3 player on the market. It boasts twice the storage capacity of the iPod Nano for the same price, and also features an expansion slot so you can transfer photos, videos, music and voice recordings to your computer, PDA or mobile phone. The 1.8-inch color screen isn’t too shabby, either. $249.99. (www.lilmonsta.com)
