Here is an excerpt from the press release:

SanDisk® Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK) today announced that the award winning Sansa™ e200 and c200 MP3 player series would both be offered with FM functionality to consumers in European Community member countries starting in December.

Launched earlier this year, the European models in both the Sansa e200 and c200 series did not contain an FM Tuner due to increased costs caused by tax requirements. However, following significant demand from the consumer, SanDisk has taken the decision to offer both FM enabled and FM disabled devices to the consumer with a marginal price differentiation.

Both the flagship Sansa e200 series and the corresponding Sansa c200 series with added FM functionality will be available in stores. The feature-packed players all include a flash memory card expansion slot, allowing users to add up to 500 additional songs through a 2GB 1 microSD™ card; extensive battery life with removable and rechargeable batteries 2 ; photo-viewing; voice recording with built-in microphone, and non-proprietary digital rights management (DRM) to allow users to purchase songs from numerous digital music sources.

In addition, the e200 series offers a rugged, scratch resistant alloy metal back casing for added durability, as well as photo and video capability facilitated through the Sansa Media Converter for the optimum user viewing experience.

The FM enabled device will ship beginning in December.
