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.
