Sony has released a new Walkman series, the NWZ-A820. These MP3 players feature up to 16GB of storage capacity and a 2.4" QVGA screen for video playback.
Slim, light and beautifully styled, the NWZ-A820 series is offered in a choice of four colour variations (black, silver, gold, and pink). Three storage sizes are available. The NWZ-A829 (16GB) can store an incredible 62 hours of video plus sound or 3,800 songs. The NWZ-A828 (8GB) boosts this to 30 hours 40 mins of video/audio or 1,850 songs. The NWZ-A826 (4GB) can store up to 15 hours of video or 925 songs.
The NWZ-A820 series lets you enjoy your personal media collection on the move for longer. Generous battery life allows up to 10 hours of video playback or 36 hours4 of uninterrupted music playback. Even with Bluetooth® stereo enabled, playback stretches to 7 hours of video or 15 hours of music.
The clear, bright 2.4-inch QVGA screen on all models supports super-smooth video playback at up to 30 frames per second with excellent contrast and colour reproduction. For extra flexibility, videos and photos can be viewed in any screen orientation (left, vertical, right) to suit personal tastes. Photo collections can also be viewed as slideshows accompanied by your chosen music track.
Support for Bluetooth® stereo opens up an exciting world of wireless connectivity options to enhance your enjoyment of digital media on the move. The NWZ-A820 series can stream audio files and track/artist data through a Bluetooth® stereo enabled micro hi-fi such as the Sony CMT-HX70BTR and CMT-HX50BTR.
If you’re out and about, it’s easy to enjoy a high-quality digital music experience via your Bluetooth® headphones such as the Sony DR-BT50 or a Bluetooth® in-car head unit like the Sony MEX-BT5100. A conveniently placed button on the side of the player allows one-touch connection to other Bluetooth® devices.
In common with all WALKMAN® models, the NWZ-A820 series supports a broad range of media formats. These include security-enhanced Windows Media Audio (WMA), copyright-free AAC, MP3 and Linear PCM music formats, plus JPEG files for photos. High quality video codecs support playback of AVC (H.264/AVC) Baseline Profile and MPEG-4 video files.
The NWZ-A820 series is perfect for enjoying your personal media collection as well as podcasts and video content downloaded from sharing sites on the web.
The WALKMAN NWZ-A820 series [NWZ-A826 (4GB), NWZ-A828 (8GB) and NWZ-A829 (16GB)] is available from April 2008.
