Little is known about the machines beyond their looks, capacity - 512MB, 1GB and 2GB of Flash storage - and lack of an FM tuner, a feature present on the current E-series line-up. According to Swedish-language site MKF.se, the players will be priced at up to SEK1,1400 ($181/£104/€150), and offer up to 28 hours' playback time.

The players sport a single-line OLED screen that glows through the casing in the now established Network Walkman fashion. They will ship in five colours: green, red, blue, purple and black. ®
