My most anticipated device of the Spring is the Sansa Connect. I got to try one out at CES in January, and I’ve got to say, I can’t wait for the device to ship late this month. Sandisk has built the usual MP3 playing capabilities that it has been shipping in other Sansa models, but the real showstopper with the Connect is its full Wifi content sharing capability. This isn’t a crippled Zune implementation, but full Wifi to internet, unlimited sharing. The device will play DRM’d and non-DRM’d WMA files, and also has built in controls to access streaming internet radio.

This should be the template for how music players work…there may be a few enhancements needed, but as a complete product, the Sansa Connect is a huge step forward.
