Sony X Series Walkman with OLED touchscreen and WiFi


Sony Insider first broke the news about an impending launch of Sony’s first WiFi-enabled touchscreen Walkman last month, and if we didn’t leave the Sony press event shortly after the Vaio P was announced or visit only the Vaio P display whenever we went to the company’s booth at CES, we may have seen the new X Series Walkman (NWZ-X1050 and NWZ-X1060) a lot sooner.

But it was only on our last visit that we got to see (but not touch) the players, which feature an unspecified web browser, YouTube streaming, 3-inch OLED touchscreen, 12-hour audio battery life, digital noise cancelling, and up to 32GB of internal flash storage. Photos below.







The wide border around the screen is disappointing (PMP/DAP screens that take up the entire face of a device are quickly becoming the norm for flagship devices destined to be compared to the iPod touch), the players won’t be released for another 5 or 6 months, and there weren’t any on display at CES that could actually be touched/used, so I don’t regret spending the bulk of my Sony booth time fondling the Vaio P.
