Sony Launches New Walkman Line

MP3 Players

One of the real milestones in mobile listening, the Sony Walkman is getting an upgrade this summer. Last week, Sony released three new models: the NWZ-A860, NWZ-S760BT, and NWZ-E460 series. The A series is the high end model, featuring a 2.8 inch touch screen, bluetooth – which will allow it to stream audio from other devices – and an FM transmitter.  Battery life is said to clock in at 25 hours for music, and 5 hours for video playback.

Two capacities will be available in the U.S.: an 8GB model for $179 and a 16GB version for $219.

The E and S series are designed to be more mobile, with a smaller size and a battery life of 50 hours for music playback and 10 for video.  The are also priced lower than the A series, making them less of a liability.
