  Sony looks set to extend the capacity of its Walkman range, introducing the NW-S706, with 4GB of storage – heady heights for a Walkman.

Details are scarce (because they’ve not officially been announced), but courtesy of, which has the device listed for pre-order, we know it features the 4GB storage, an FM tuner, line-in recording, 3-line colour display, a quick charge function, up to 50 hours battery life and noise cancelling technology (ideal for that daily commute).

Available in three colours (purple, black and pink), it’s retailing at Play for £179.99. No date for shipping, but according to Engadget, it’s due to hit stores from 9th October.
