Music lovers will be happy to see that Apple's iPod Touch finally has a worthy contender with the upcoming Sony OLED Walkman NWZ-X1000 (NWZ-X1060 and NWZ-X1050). Or will they? The iPod touch is well established and has a huge ecosystem that supports it with iTunes and the App Store. Sony attacks with a huge list of features in the Sony OLED Walkman NWZ-X1000, tring to lead you away from the iPod touch.

The Sony OLED Walkman NWZ-X1000 has a granite looking shell, which looks pretty cool, on the exterior of the player. On the audio side it will play MP3, WMA, and AAC at up to 320kbps, and for video there's MPEG-4, H.264, and WMV support. The video is limited at 320 x 240px despite the 3-inch OLED screen's 432 x 240px native resolution. This is about a quarter of those pixels gone to waste. Other goodies include FM tuner, 802.11g/b WiFi, internet browsing with YouTube support, and 33 hours of battery life when grooving to tunes and 9 hours when watching video. The Sony OLED Walkman NWZ-X1000 features a great touchscreen that brings it close enough to the iPod touch to even consider a comparison.
The screen is a bit smaller than the Apple player; in fact, it is a full half inch smaller. Despite it's smaller size the colors and display are bright and crisp which is where the Sony's NWZ-X1000 excels most over iPod Touch. The bright OLED display is capable of displaying far brighter, clearer color resolution than previous LCD screens, and most importantly it does so in an energy efficient manner.
In regards to video playback, the OLED Walkman offers up to 9 hours from a single charge compared to the iPod Touch’s 6 hours.

In regards to the browser, the Sony OLED Walkman NWZ-X1000 uses the same NetFront technology as used by the PSP and PS3, which is not feature intensive compared to the iPod Touch's proper, fully featured web browser.

The Sony comes with 16GB or 32GB of storage for all your music and video, as well as some great sound enhancing features and its built-in digital noise canceling has a noise suppression ratio of 17dB.
In our opinion, when it comes to better audio experience, Sony are the leaders in the market. Digital noise canceling, digital sound enhancement engine and the Sony headphones will all enhance your music experience with the Sony player.

In regards to the comparison of Apple over Sony, it is my view that iPod is a better deal primarily because of the tons of games, a bigger screen with higher resolution, infinitely more choices of software through the App Store, and a huge developer community that is coming up with new stuff every day.

It is our opinion that music lovers, who value the quality of their music over anything else will enjoy the Sony OLED Walkman NWZ-X1000 and those who are looking for a device that does it all are better off with the iPod Touch.

The Sony Walkman NWZX-1060 with 32GB (£249.99) and the 16GB Sony Walkman NWZ-X1050B (£199.99) are available for pre-order on Amazon UK and will start shipping on May 31st.

The Apple iPod touch players are selling on Amazon UK and the Apple Store.
