Sony Insider reports Sony will debut a wearable W-series Walkman player at CES 2009. This digital audio player will feature 2GB of storage, a great battery life and a price tag of $50-75. The site says three minutes of charging will give you a ninety minute charge, while thirty minutes will give you twelve hours of continuous playback.
Sony is set to offer a completely different Walkman than ever before, this time aimed at the budget conscious consumer who wants something to match their active lifestyle. This upcoming W-series Walkman is a phenomenal offering from Sony, with incredible aesthetics, 2GB storage, and a low price point ($50-75). What’s most surprising is the design, which is a very sleek wrap around earphone that has magnetic connectors on each end to keep it bound together when not in use, forming a very distinctive heart shape. There is no separate unit - what you see is the entire player. The earphones are 13.5mm EX quality, and currently supported codecs include MP3, AAC, WMA (w/ DRM) and PCM.
