CES 2009: Sony reveals its 3" OLED-screened WALKMAN X music and media player

Share

This beauty is the new Sony WALKMAN X range – featuring a 3″ OLED touch screen to make videos look marginally better than they have ever looked before. Although they won’t look very good when you’ve had your fingers all over the screen for six months.

The X1050 and X1060 both feature digital noise cancelling technology, FM tuners, the 3″ 432×240 screen and come with 16 or 32GB of storage space. Here’s a big photo of it, as it’s rather pretty. That’s not my music. That’s someone else’s music.

The WALKMAN X is even packed with a wi-fi chip and custom BBC iPlayer tool for watching telly wherever there’s some wireless broadband to nick, plus it’ll do YouTube and play MP4 videos, WMVs and H.264 material. Sony says you’ll be able to have a WALKMAN X in “spring 2009” – and we think quite a few people will be taking it up on that offer.

There’s more like this on our vast CES 2009 mega-page.
