Yeah sure, like the A847, one year after Japan and confidential distribution at outrageous prices...
64Gb capacity starts to walk on HD pmp's territory I suppose... :(

If these new players are coming to the U.S. I will be buying one almost as soon as they become available. I've been holding out for a new high-end Sony player here in the States for a LONG time.

I'd probably be nabbing a 16GB S series as I don't care about touchscreen controls or noise cancellation.

Uh, what??? This is an upgrade to the A847 released in the EU & Japan, and 64gb is a darn fine capacity for some of us. As for price, as a Sony fan I already expect it to come out of the gate overpriced. You'd expect that since you seem to have followed Sony's international releases as well,...

You know, flash has some advantages over HDD, which would make them superior if they could get up to that amount of space. The price may be high, but it's for a lot of memory in a small form factor that uses less power than a HDD.

Oh man, I hope these new players are for sale in the US in the next few weeks. I will certainly be buying one ASAP.

Front page on ABI - WooT!!!

I'm assuming that there probably isn't any official release date since there aren't even official US prices yet, but is there a reasonable ETA? Probably going to pick up a 32gb or 64gb depending on prices.

BlindBandit 07-26-2011 11:07 AM

Yay the X series is back.... no wait it's the A series :O. good to see that Sony went back to the almost close X series model with OLED screen, even it don't have wifi that good because the X series sucks when it comes to wifi *hint: YouTube app & Internet Browser*

matthewcollin 07-27-2011 11:42 AM

New player prices officially announced by Sony.

http://www.engadget.com/2011/07/27/s...ries-walkmans/

Note: No 16GB S-series? Really? Who had that bright idea?

Marvin the Martian 07-27-2011 11:48 AM

The A and S prices are too high, IMO.
