Sony prices up OLED-screened iPod Touch rival
Walkman X out tomorrow
Sony's OLED-equipped portable media player, the Walkman X, goes on sale tomorrow the company has just announced.
Pricing is exactly what you'd expect if you've been keeping an eye on online retailers who leaked the details months ago.
Sony's Walkman X: clear and crisp OLED screen
Sony itself will be asking £209 for the 16GB model and £270 for the 32GB version. Both models sport a 240 x 432 OLED touch-sensitive screen ready to call up music and movies. The Xs have Wi-Fi on board too, used to give direct access to online content from the likes of YouTube and BBC iPlayer.
Still not enough content sources for you? How about the built-in FM tuner?
What, you can't hear me? That's probably because you're using the X series' noise-isolating and noise-cancelling earphones. ®
The NW-HD1 replacement I have been waiting for - shame its not Atrac compatible but hey. The Atrac MP3 converter that Sony made available & my 500GB drive negates that anyway.
Who cares if it beats the touch or not - its a Walkman not a fashion accessory.
