Is it just me, or does Sony Walkman still take you back to East 17 on a tape player…. Random! Well the latest Walkman will hopefully dispell both of those!! Sony’s new X-series is looking to take on the i-pod touch heads on with an OLED touchscreen, Wi-Fi 16GB & 32GB options and built-in noise cancellation. A slightly smaller screen than the touch, but with OLED for brighter colors and better contrast.
It also comes with an MP3 Player first, of digital noise canceling – plug in any 3.5mm EX headphone and they will block out ambient noise, making the need for expensive headphones obsolete!
They have just popped up on Amazon pre-order for 2 – 5 weeks shipping. The 16gig NWZ-X1050B will cost £214 and 32gig NWZ-X1060B will cost £283. An ipod killer? Maybe, just maybe…. But it still does less than my storm!!
