Sony introduced the new flagship to its Walkman music and video player lineup. The Sony Walkman NWZ-X1000 is the first Wi-Fi enabled Walkman player. The music and video player will use Wi-Fi in combination with an Internet browser to surf the Web on the player’s 3-inch screen. That touchscreen uses OLED technology, a screen technology that is still-rare but known for its brightness and high contrast.
The Sony Walkman X1000 is also the first music player with active noise cancellation built in. Like noise canceling headphones, the Sony Walkman X1000 will generate counter-tones to eliminate noise.
For Internet features, the Sony Walkman X1000 will also have YouTube streaming capabilities. Presumably, this will be a separate app or the mobile YouTube Web site, but not true embedded flash within the Internet browser.
With the Walkman’s 16GB and 32GB capacities, same as the iPod touch, and the heavy emphasis on music and video quality, the battle will be certainly raging.
