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.
You can pick up the NWZ-A810 in 2GB for $140, 4GB for $180 and 8GB for $230. The A810 comes in silver, white, pink, or black, depending on how despondent you are. The S610 is the same deal except you should knock off $20 per model. You can pick them up online from Sony today should you not care about Apple’s big announcement September 5th.
