Sony Network Walkman

Sony has updated its with some design tweaks and a lower price, according IDG News Service. Due in October, the new player features a new range of colors (silver, blue or pink)--much like Apple's iPod mini: "Sony's switch to blue and pink follows a local market preference. Apple Computer has seen the silver and blue versions of its IPod Mini player become the most popular of the five colors it offers in Japan, and the pink and green versions are popular among young women." Sony also changed the backlight from green to blue, now offers a cord-based charging option (vs. cradle-only), removed the inline remote control control, and will make it available in Japan (only) for a lower price ($360 vs. $477), about 20% higher than Apple's 20GB iPod, which sells for about $300 in Japan.
