Sony Walkman Players: The B-Series
by Mark R
Some of you may remember back in the eighties, when Sony’s Walkmans (Walkmen? What is the plural on that?) dominated the portable music market. This was in the days before MP3s, and earlier models actually had (gasp!) cassettes.
Sony may not ever beat out the iPod, but they are still in the portable music game. In fact, this isn’t the first time we have covered Sony’s new Walkman series, but last time, we only had a little information and no picture of the B-Series.
As you can see, the B-Series is a capsule shaped wonder that looks a lot like your typical USB flash drive. That is because the end of the B-Series is designed to pop off to reveal a USB port for some Plug-and-Play action.
The MP3 player is designed with an FM tuner, and has a quick charge function. Unfortunately, I have heard from my sources that the battery life is not long. I have also heard that the display screen is incredible tiny, as you might be able to see.
The B-Series is available already in a variety of colors including black, pink, blue, and red in 1GB and 2GB versions. The 1GB version is about $44.99, and the 2GB version costs about $59.99.
