Yahoo! just announced a partnership with Sandisk on the Sansa Connect. This device is a media player with built-in WiFi which syncs with your Flickr account and comes with ready-to-listen-to Yahoo! Music content. The Sansa Connect will contain 4GB of storage, Internet radio, a 2.2-inch screen, and comes with a reasonable $250 price tag to boot. Those of you willing to shell out the $15 for Yahoo’s unlimited music subscription plan will surely benefit from the Sansa Connect.
No details on when the device will be released, but I’d say sometime during 2007 is a safe bet. Hit the link for Mike’s interview with Yahoo’s Ian Rogers.
