Seems wise of them to use an low-powered OLED display, I mean with the battery powering the Wi-Fi, noise cancellation, and digital amp.

It's kinda funny that they still managed to use the same button layout (like the ones on SE phones and previous Walkman models) and fit them on the top.

Excellent useful buttons, awful 80ies "stonewashed" housing.

I'm not too keen on touch screen anyway, but I suspect my days of being a hardware button Luddite are numbered. It does have the critical buttons as hardware, which might persuade me.

Judging from the size of the headphone port, it's about the thickness of a Zen. I dig the bevelled edges, don't care about the noise reduction. The finish is... well, ugly. And do they really need to write all over it? I wouldn't reject it for that, though, since I'm gonna cover it with a silicon condom anyway.

But no integrated expansion card, no deal. 'Cmon SDXC! Yeah, your 2T music player is coming someday...

The only thing that I need 100% will probably be not there (pan/balance), otherwise I'd join the /me wants chorus.

The marble isn't even near as nice as the cowon s9 but the features are pretty good. If the price is decent and (especially and, if this is no, no buy) the sound quality is great, I think I'd take it over the S9.

My initial impressions on seeing the leaked pictures was that it's a pretty ugly piece of kit - I don't like that granite finish or the style of the external buttons.

It looks a lot better in the video though.

Looks somewhat sluggish and laggy in the video. At least at some steps.

hmm need other smilies to describe my walkman emotions!

anyways, I wouldn't say it it sluggish, the person pressing the buttons might not be pressing them hard enough, you don't want a screen that is too sensitive of course.

I am wondering if the user interface can be customized like on the S9? my guess it will not be.

hmm I have now found an emiticon which I can use to summarize my feelings and thoughts towards sony.



Quote:
Sony X Series Walkman® video MP3 player; NWZ-X1051 (16GB) and NWZ-X1061 (32GB) Available in early summer in black, price TBD

FM and Multi Audio/Video Codec support for MP3/WMA/AAC/L-PCM and AVC(H.264/AVC)/MPEG-4/WMV DRM


early summer?????!!!! what givess, the S9 is already on sale, and the samsung P3 will probably go on sale shortly afterwards. and here I thought sony finally realized that delivering products sooner rather than later is what they have to do, but no, why not show off the new walkman at ces and what the hell, put it on sale, oh I don't know, 6 months from now!

sony = fail for this.

After the video, I can honestly say I'm disappointed. I thought this would be amazing, it's not. And wi-fi on a 3" screen? No, not so hot. Sorry, no sale from my end.

heh, I saw one of my old players in the video I wish I still had. I does look a bit lethargic, but it could be the untrained user too. I didn't really have much interest in it as I presume it will be over priced and no usefull sound enhancements, guess we'll know for sure soon.

Almost didn't bother to join in this convo, but what the hell..
We all seem to be basing opinions on lack of information about details...

My hopes that between now and release... that they dump the granite look, eliminate most of the text from the sides of the player (how annoying).. and add FLAC to the list of codecs. Other than that I like it a lot... FLAC will be make or break for me on this one.. if Samsung and Cowon can add FLAC.. then.....

battery life on this will be quite interesting to see....
