walkman again.

Let's hope Sony gets back in the music game, after all, they are the grand daddy of portable music. So once again they resurrect the Walkman brand. i remember when i saw my first walkman, it had two phone outputs for couples to share. those were the days of old. as the walkman progressed, it got smaller, shinier, and increased functions, but it was a dead end road because the media was still the cassette tape. with the birth of the Discman, CD's became portable and quality sound was the hype. then came the MD's which, in my opinion, are still the best medium. small, portable, large capacities, looks great with the optical discs, cheap, and did i mention it looks good? anyway, seems like digital is the latest buzz... ok ok, it's also old news, but Sony didn't really get into the game till recently. now they have a Walkman phone, flash based MP3 players as well as the hard drive based ones. their latest product combines the OLED hidden display of the Bean and NW E507, the hard drive capacity of the NW HD5, and the color screen of Vaio Pocket (mentioned HERE).

the versatile NW HD5:

the new Walkman (notice all the players are called NW) also in 20GB format with a Organic EL screen. the A1000 and A3000. The differences lie in drive capacity and screen size; the A1000 being 6GB with 1.5 inch screen, while the A3000 sports 20GB with a 2 inch screen. they will come in pink, silver, blue purple, whatever... all metallic. looks ok in decorated photos, but in reality it may be an overly decorated music player. compare the studio photos with the actual photos: the screen is hidden behind a mirror-like body so that it is invisible with the screen is off.

and here it is in reality:

it probably isn't fair to say it's ugly, but there's definitely a difference between the studio prepped shots and the actual untouched images. that's to say for all products, but i'm still skeptical about the mirror/OLED screens. good idea though. keep it up sony! [equipbug]
