    Sony launches PSP, Walkman-friendly set-top box

    The PSP is a definite multimedia platform, and AT&T is selling a metric assload of Walkmen phones from Sony-Ericsson, but both of these devices have limited sources of media to take advantage of. PS3 owners have long enjoyed the ability to rip disks or downloadable content for their portable devices, but what if you’re an Xbox 360 fan? Enter the BDZ-A70, a set-top DVR-style device that… Read More

    http://blip.tv/play/AauANw Here’s a quick look at the 2GB video-capable Walkman from Sony. These little guys cost $99 and have a pretty easy-to-use interface, FM tuner, album art, and up to 33 hours of battery life for audio and up to 8 hours of battery life for video. 2GB Walkman Video MP3 Player [SonyStyle.com] Read More

    Sony's new Walkmen have Bluetooth, noise cancelling, 16GB

    Sony’s got its new Walkman-branded mp3 players out there, in three major flavors. The model numbers are incomprehensible as usual, so we’ll simplify them: the 710 more compact, with a small 1.8″ screen, and is limited to 8GB. The 720 series is bigger, with a 2.4″ screen, and goes up to 16GB. They both share Sony’s noise cancelling technology, which I was initially… Read More

  • Sony drops a trio of new customizable Walkmans

    [photopress:img_001.jpg,full,center] To compete with the iPod Shuffle, which is a fine DAP itself, Sony’s released a new line of USB-ready Walkman MP3 players, or at least in Japan. The 1, 2, or 4GB players come in many colors, have simple controls, and an LCD display. Another feature being pushed is the three-minute charge time, which gives you three hours of playback, and a longer charge… Read More

  • Sony A820 8GB/16GB Walkman has The Bluetooth built-in

    [photopress:sonya820.jpg,full,center] New Sony portable media players for your viewing pleasure. The NW-A820 series was just announced in Japan, where it’ll be released on March 20. (No release date for the U.S. has been announced. Sony hates us.) Two versions have so far been spotted, a $350ish 16GB model and a $260ish 8GB model. Now, then, what does it do? First, what it… Read More

    Sony Ericsson officially announces W980 aka Alona

    Today at MWC Sony Ericsson officially announced the Alona, which will be sold under the W980 moniker. The latest Walkman phone brings 8GB of internal storage, superior sound quality, which is supposed to be true to the original recording. Also built-in is an FM transmitter that allows you to send whatever you’re listening to to any other device that has an FM receiver. That’s a pretty… Read More

    Product Name: Sony Ericsson Z555 Description: Sony is focusing on the music with their new Walkman phone. The W350 has a flip design with TrackID (hold it up to a radio and ID the song that’s playing) and a number of classy colors. It also has stereo Bluetooth streaming. Read More

    SE W580i launced on AT&T; Decent little musicphone, indeed

    With all the Zune madness this week, we’ve overlooked another music device that just launched, the Sony-Ericsson W580i for AT&T. We like SE phones a lot, though as music devices (which they are, they’re called Walkmen), there’s still some work to be done. That being said, it’s a step in the right direction, with stereo Bluetooth, and a built-in FM radio, you’re… Read More

  • Sony Walkman NWZ-A810 and NWZ-S610

    Sony Walkman NWZ-A810 and NWZ-S610

    Though Sony has ditched ATRAC and its music store, it doesn’t mean it’s going to stop putting out digital audio players. The ATRAC-less NWZ-A810 and NWZ-S610 are all about supporting AAC, WMA, MP3, AVC, and MP4 formats and support PlaysForSure audio. Both are supposed to get extremely good battery life around the 33 hour mark despite the 1.8-inch QVGA screen being lit up all the time. Read More

  • Sony Ditches Music Store, ATRAC Audio Format

    Sony Ditches Music Store, ATRAC Audio Format

    Over the past three to four years, I’ve always kept an eye on Sony’s MP3 Walkmen players. Though they look cool at times and have some features I’d enjoy (like FM Radio), the fact that they are not OS X-compatible and use the ATRAC file format is what kept myself and possibly you from purchasing one. So it looks like it only took about half a lifetime for Sony to wise up and… Read More
