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. ®
