This thing does look interesting, but I’m not sure people are ready to buy albums on microSD cards just yet…

The slotRadio player is a small, stylish, portable device that plays music directly from pre-loaded slotRadio™ cards, eliminating the hassle of software installations, time-consuming music selection and file-by-file downloading. Most slotRadio cards contain 1,000 songs* featuring artists from Billboard® top charts. The cards are professionally arranged into a variety of genre-themed playlists.

“SanDisk has delivered a seamless solution for music lovers who want to listen to their favorite songs but don’t want to deal with the hassle of downloading content and creating playlists,” said Jay Kramer, chairman of the awards program and vice president, worldwide marketing, SEPATON. “The slotRadio player and card give listeners instant access to 1,000 songs at an affordable price, and we are proud to select the slotRadio player for the Best of Show Innovation Award.”

“We are honored to receive the Best of Show award for the innovative flash memory consumer application that is the slotRadio player and card,” said Noam Kedem, vice president, content, SanDisk. “slotRadio entertainment is all about making great music effortless – and this translates into a quicker and easier experience for consumers who wish to simply enjoy the music without the technological drama.”
