Verizon brings slotRadio+ cards to BlackBerry

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2010

This is interesting news. Verizon just announced that they will be offering slotRadio+ microSD memory cards (which already come preloaded with music) for most BlackBerrys. We’ve seen the cards before. They are not new. They were introduced by SanDisk last year and can hold 1,000 songs from various artists on the Billboard charts.

First you’ll need to download and install an application on your BlackBery that will let you connect to Verizon’s V CAST Music service, for it to work. Each of the cards will retail for $50 if you like the skip button enough to get one.

SanDisk releases a quartet of slotRadio cards with 1,000 tracks each

sandiskslotradiocards-sbI still don’t get the slotRadio format. I can see what the record companies are trying to do, but they still don’t seem to get why consumers prefer digital tracks to physical formats. With a digital track, you can port the song to multiple devices, assuming there is no DRM. SlotRadio tracks are stuck on the microSD card, which might as well be a CD.

SanDisk has announced the launch of four new slotRadio cards from Billboard that each feature 1,000 tracks. Each of the cards covers a different music genre and will sell for $39.99. The genres covered include rock, country, oldies, and Hip Hop/R&B.

Hands on: SanDisk slotRadio

Sansa slotRadio comes with 1,000 songsWe checked out Sandisk’s new slotRadio recently. As a refresher, this player comes with a microSD memory card slot so you can have your choice of pre-loaded music. The idea is that you can get it pre-loaded with Billboard hits cards that hold more than 1,000 tracks and buy other similar cards.

Did we like it? Did we hate it? Is it filled with useless songs that are all played out? You’re about to find out.

Sansa slotRadio comes with 1,000 songsIf you love music, but aren’t picky about what you specifically listen to, this one may be a good bet for your ears. It comes with 1,000 “hand picked” songs. Yeah I know this could spell disaster. Hopefully the songs were handpicked by someone in your age group, so you don’t end up with Britney Spears or Hannah Montana.

It comes with 1,000 songs “handpicked from the Billboard charts” coming on a microSD card for use with the player. If you get bored with those, you can get genre-specific 1,000 song bundles for $40 more. It’s a cool idea, which brings the cost of music down to 4 cents per song and it also cuts downloading out of the equation. The problem is most of the songs will probably be garbage. There’s also an FM radio integrated in there too.
