SanDisk unveils 8GB music player

From Cnet:
On Monday, flash storage specialist SanDisk cut prices across its e200 line of digital-music players and introduced a new high-end model, the e280.

Priced at $249.99, the e280 has storage capacity of 8GB, or roughly 2,000 songs. At the low end of the line, the 2GB e250 now costs $139.99. The e200 models have a 1.8-inch screen and feature a digital FM tuner and voice recorder.

SanDisk, which holds the second-largest market share in digital-music players behind Apple, introduce a $249.99 MP3 player, the Sansa e280, with 8GB of storage capacity.

That is enough to hold about 2,000 songs, which is double the capacity of the similarly priced iPod Nano, Apple's best-selling digital-music player, the report said.

SanDisk also is cutting prices on its other music players, including existing 2GB, 4GB and 8Gb models, by almost 30 percent. The low-end 2GB Sansa e250 now costs $139.99.
I wonder if this is able to compete with the Ipod Nano. Since this is 8GB and is the same price as the 4GB nano, this should be awesome, right? Not according to this reviewer who has played with the SanDisk unit:
I would've bought a SanDisk, but they don't support AAC, and the scroll wheel is just too small, and it sticks out too far, making the buttons difficult to press. Yeah, I bought a nano 4 gigger.
