I love toys. Maybe that’s not a sensible way to start off a review – but I've done it, so there! Needless to say, I’m particularly thrilled when I'm sent something like the Sansa Shaker, an odd-looking device that seems to be targeted at the younger generation.
True to its name, the Sansa Shaker looks very much like a Shaker – the salt-and-pepper kind. Since it has a speaker on one end with the holes, I really did expect it to 'serve' (pardon the pun) a dual purpose.
On the other end, if you unscrew the 'lid', is an AAA battery compartment, a mini-USB port, and a slot for an SD card. The Sansa Shaker has two separate 3.5mm earphone sockets on either side of the player, just beneath the volume band. There’s a Play/Pause/Power key in the front, above the track skip band located at the bottom.
What I mean by ‘band’ is that the controls for the volume and track selection are usable by turning the white portion (band) in the direction shown. Much as in those pepper mills on the dinner table. Only Sansa’s version doesn’t crush all the technology inside to powder.
