The new Sony X Series Video Walkman player takes portability to the next level. Offering superb audio-visual quality and Wi-Fi access in a slim, sleek design the X Series is purposefully designed for the music lover on the go. Sporting the latest in OLED display technology and Sony’s award-winning design, the X Series is a milestone in the history of Walkman music players. It simply offers more than ever before and for some will offer a valid alternative to the Apple iPod touch.

The Sony X Series Walkman features a 3-inch OLED display at 432 x 240 WQVGA, digital noise cancellation, wireless connectivity, and a touch screen, taking portability to the next level. The 16 GB memory holds up to 4,000 songs. The Sony X series lets you enjoy up to 33 hours of audio or 9 hours of video on a single charge. It supports MP3, WMA, AAC and L-PCM audio formats; AVC (H.264/AVC), MPEG-4, and WMV DRM video formats; JPEG image files. At 0.4 x 2.1 x 3.9 inches and weighing nearly 5.6 ounces the X Series fits as easily in the pocket as it does the hand.

With the Sony X Series Walkman you can enjoy ideal sound with the S-Master digital clear audio amplifier. When connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi, a free radio service uploads personalized music to your Walkman. The box includes the Sony Walkman X Series 16 GB Video MP3 Player w/ OLED Display, earbud headphones (S, M, L), Quick Start Guide, USB Cable, Attachment, Audio input cable, Plug adapter for in-flight use (single/dual), and CD-ROM (with Windows Media Player 11, Media Manager for Walkman, Operation Guide).

The OLED technology used in the Sony X Series Walkman has a response time suitable for movie playback. A wide viewing angle of nearly 180 degrees gives consistent tone and stable contrast, as well as a wide range of color reproduction and a high contrast ratio. The Sony X Walkman is more expensive than the iPod touch, which is a bit questionable move by Sony.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
