The Sansa View was released in September 2007 in 8GB and 16GB capacities, but will now be available in a Nano-busting 32GB capacity.

The View has a 2.4in 320x240-pixel screen and is ideal for viewing video as you can now store around 50 movies, depending on compression rates.

Battery life is enough to have Apple worried, too - Sandisk claim the View will last 35 hours with audio or 7 hours with video.

The capacity of the tiny Sandisk Clip player has also been doubled to 4GB and will be available for $80. UK release dates and pricing for both players are unconfirmed.

Sandisk also unveiled a 12GB microSD card and a new range of SD cards aimed at the video market - VideoHD. These high-performance cards will be labelled with video recording times in minutes as well as capacity in GB.
