So the first one is the Walkman E. Pretty hot. LCD screen, video playback, two-tone design. No pricing or storage sizing.

Just 9.3mm thin and available in black and red, the super-compact WALKMAN® E Series slips easily into a pocket or bag. Despite its small size, it’s packed with serious features to enhance enjoyment of your personal media collection.
The generously-sized 2-inch QVGA Colour LCD screen offers a crisp, detail-packed view of videos, photos, album art, playlists and other functions.
As you’d expect from WALKMAN®, the E Series is packed with unique Sony sound enhancement features for a more satisfying listening experience.
It’s the first E series WALKMAN® to feature Clear Audio technology by Sony for a dynamic, detail-packed soundstage. Clear Stereo reduces leakage between left and right channels, while Clear Bass delivers powerful, controlled low-end frequencies without distortion.
There’s also a 5-band equaliser to fine-tune your listening enjoyment. In addition, a Dynamic Normalizer balances volume levels between songs ensuring a smooth, comfortable listening experience.

Importing music, video and photos is quick and fuss-free, with simple drag-and-drop from your PC’s media folder or via iTunes[1] 8.1 using Content Transfer.
A range of major music and video formats are supported including rights-managed WMA and WMV. In a WALKMAN® first, there’s now support for video file format conversion via the supplied Content Transfer software.
For even more listening choice there’s a high quality FM radio tuner. Broadcasts can be recorded at the touch of a button, to enjoy whenever you want.
Great sound and smart features are teamed with extra-long battery life. The WALKMAN® E Series delivers up to 30 hours of music or 6 hours of video playback on a single charge – more than enough entertainment for the daily commute or short trips away.
