The summer is here. It’s June 1st! This should be a great joy especially for the young, but the adults shouldn’t be ignored as they might wanna relax on a beach somewhere in the Maldives. Well, during the road to the beach, or on a regular trip many of us like to listen to music or watch movies therefore a portable media player is great. Here is the Sandisk Sansa View 8GB Media Player which does everything a portable media player does, and it has a really cool design.

The Sandisk Sansa View 8GB media player features 8GB of memory where you can store thousands of files like music, movies, and images, a radio FM tuner with 20 presets, a built-in microphone, a headphone jack, and a microSDHC expansion slot. 8GB of memory is not that much, but it will allow you to store everything that you need. However, this is where the microSDHC slot come – to add more storage memory. If you are tired of your music and videos, then you can tune in to a radio or you can record yourself saying various stuff. The headphone jack will give you the possibility to pun on your headphones and listen to whatever you like without disturbing the people around you.

Sandisk Sansa View 8GB Media Player with FM Tuner measures 4.29 x 1.95 x .41 inch, and it weighs 2.9oz. Well, it’s very small, compact, and light – what more would you like? Very sleek design, I must say. The portable media player, supports files like MPEG4, WMV, H.264, MP3, WMA, WAV, non-DRM AAC, but if you are tired of them then you can listen to Audible Audio Books or you can connect it to Yahoo! Music, Rhapsody To Go, Napster, and eMusic. Pretty cool, right? Listen to the latest tracks from the online music subscriptions sites.

The Sandisk Sansa View 8GB Media Player with FM Tuner features a 2.4-inch screen which is enough to watch movies from Amazon Unboxed, Guba, and MovieLink. Well, we would have preferred Hulu, but these video services are OK. The portable media player comes packed with a battery that will provide 35 hours of music playback, and 7 hours of video playback. The gadget is compatible with Windows XP and Vista, but not with Linux or Mac. You can connect it to your PC using the USB 2.0 port and cable.
