Could these be Sony's latest Walkmans?

According to a report by website Sony Insider, Sony’s upcoming NW-E series consists of three players: the 2GB NWZ-E435, the 4GB NWZ-E436 and its flagship 8GB NWZ-E438.

Each model supports a range of audio formats, including MP3, WMA and AAC. The report also claims that transferring music onto and off of the Sony Walkmans is easy, because each player is compatible with both Windows Media Player and iTunes. The players will also be able to support video files, and an FM tuner is included.

The maximum battery life available for video playback is claimed to be up to four hours, but if you opt for plain audio then it’s said you’ll get up to 76 hours of juice.

The trio each have a 2in LCD display, but measure just 8.5mm from front to back.

All three models are expected to appear internationally within the next couple of months. The 2GB NWZ-E435 will be available in black or pink and the 4GB NWZ-E436 will be available in black, blue, pink or red. The 8GB NWZ-E438 will only ship in black. Prices haven’t been heard yet.

Sony UK's website has a section for the E series - but lists no current models. Update imminent, you think?
