Sony Unveils The X-Series Walkman


Sony today took the wraps off its top-of-the-line Walkman Video MP3 player ? the X-series Walkman.

The X-series (NWZ-X1000 models) is Wi-Fi enabled and features an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) touch screen, Sony's Digital Clear Audio Technologies, as well as embedded contentprovided by Slacker Radio and YouTube.

The new phone features a very promising 3-inch OLED touch screen, with a 180-degree viewing angle. Additionally, when watching movies on the device, the image on the screen can be adjusted based on the user's preference, while navigation has been simplified via a feature called scene scroll. Utilizing the scene scroll feature, users select their preferred time increment and simply swipe across the screen to scroll forward and backward through scenes.



Sony's X-series Walkman also uses a digital noise canceling (DNC) software engine to block out ambient noise.

The accompanying 13.5mm EX headphones house a small microphone to measure intrusive noise so the DNC filter can create an optimal inverted sound wave that reduces up to 98.0 percent of the noise. Users can select airplane, bus/train or office modes which use different filters in the digital signal processor specifically tuned for these surroundings. As an added benefit, users can turn on the noise canceling feature for peace and quiet even without listening to music. On airplanes, travelers can also connect the X-series player directly to a plane?s audio / video system with the included accessory cable, and enjoy regular in-flight entertainment with the bonus of digital noise cancellation.

The X-series Walkman broadens options for enjoying content from multiple sources, including many download stores, the FM tuner, personal collections and embedded services like Slacker Radio. Using Slacker, music lovers select up to three stations and hundreds of songs will get pushed to the device at no charge. When the stations are refreshed in a Wi-Fi area, the content is buffered and cached on the Walkman player so those tunes can be enjoyed anywhere and everywhere.

The X-series Walkman devices also play protected Windows Media Video (WMV) files, and support other video codecs such as AVC Baseline (H.264) and MPEG-4. It also comes with Content Transfer software which simplifies "drag and drop" transfer of non-DRM music, videos, podcasts and playlists from online music services such as iTunes to Walkman players.



The battery life is up to 33 hours of music playback and up to 9 hours of video playback.

Utilizing built-in Wi-Fi technology, the X-series Walkman Video MP3 players let you access an Internet web browser, subscribe to and refresh podcasts, and search for and playback content on YouTube, all without using your PC. In addition, a "Related Links" function found when playing your favorite songs allows for quick searches of complementary content via YouTube using metadata associated with the song.

The device also utilizes a hybrid interface with both touch panel operation and a hard key system to improve upon the navigation experience. Select buttons like volume, play/pause, rewind/fast forward, lock and noise canceling enhance usability when the device is in a backpack, purse or pocket for quick operation without looking at the display.

The X-series Walkman video MP3 player is available now for pre-sales on sonystyle.com. The device will come in black in two different storage capacities, the NWZ- X1051 with 16GB of internal storage and the NWZ- X1061 with 32GB, and cost $299 and $399 respectively. Both models can be found in Sony Style stores and select retailers nationwide mid-June.
