Sony announces in Europe the WALKMAN. No joke, the new Sony music player is just called WALKMAN in capital letters.

Update: On the product page Sony is defining that this is actually the E Series. Not sure why they omitted this in the press-release.

The new USB stick style Flash memory music players feature a single line OLED display. The compact Sony Walkman is 79mm long and weighs only 25g. Sony highlights the fast battery charging time. A charge of 3 minutes gives 3 hours of playback time (only for ATRAC). The WALKMAN plays ATRAC, MP3 and WMA (no DRM - what a pity).
Other features of the WALKMAN include FM-Tuner, 5-Band Equalizer and a nice 28 hour battery-life. The WALKMAN comes in pink, violet, blue, silver, black and lime green. Available storage configurations will be 512MB to 1GB and 2GB.
The WALKMAN will be available from the end of April 2006 across Europe.
