SonyA-SeriesWalkman.jpgSony update their Walkman line today with handful of new players, including the wireless Bluetooth streaming NWZ-A860 and NWZ-S760 models.

The A-Series NWZ-A860 looks much like a smartphone with its 2.8 inch LCD touchscreen, but remains very much a dedicated media player, with an S-Master MX digital amplifier, hpto and video viewers an 16GB of storage.

The afore-mentioned Bluetooth streaming allows the NWZ-A860 to hook up with Bluetooth speakers, headphones, docks and in-car units too.

Also packing the Bluetooth tech is the NWZ-S760 S-Series model, with “legendary sound” through Clear Audio Tech, and 50 hours of continuous playback form a single charge.

The presumably cheaper E-Series NWZ-E560 model packs a 2 inch QVGA screen and FM tuner, and is available in multiple sizes (4GB, 8GB,16GB) and colours (black, red, blue, green, pink).

All of the new Walkman models feature SenseMe, which orgainises your music into different genre specific shuffle channels, a karaoke mode and MediaGo drag-and-drop transfer.

No pricing available yet, with the range due in stores by the end of August.
