Sony Walkman DCC-FMT50U FM transmitter and car charger

MP3 players

With FM transmitters about to go legal, I’m sure we’ll see a glut of them hit the UK in the coming months (to add to the large number already in use illegally). In fact, we might see this Sony Walkman DCC-FMT50U FM transmitter and car charger, which has just launched in Japan.

There’s confusion over whether it will be good with any Walkman – the specifications claim just the NW-A3000 and A1000, but that sounds a little too restrictive. It can charge any USB device and has four preset buttons for the FM transmitter.

Available in Japan now for 6,195 Yen (around £28). We’ll have to wait and see if Sony brings something like this to the UK.
