Sony claims the player also boasts a battery life of up to 30 hours for music and eight hours video playback. Music and videos can also be uploaded from a CD collection or purchased via Sony Connect music download store. You can also store and share your JPEG photos with clever slideshow functions. Downloading video content is done with a simple drag and drop procedure.

In addition to this, Sony has announced the launch of the Walkman NW-E010 series of digital music players. Available in black and pink, this range of compact Flash MP3 players charges from your PC through USB and features a quick charge-up function where, apparently, three minutes' charging delivers three hours' music playback, with a full hour's charge providing up to 30 hours of your favourite tunes.
