Sony is offering the new player in six colors with 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB storage capacities. The player features a built-in FM tuner while supporting AAC (non-DRM), MP3, WMA (non-DRM), and ATRAC music files. A "quick-charge" feature enables users to charge the device for three minutes for up to three hours of playback time. The new Walkman is compatible with the Sony Connect online music service, and includes SonicStage software to import, manage, or transfer music. The gadget offers USB 2.0 connectivity, a one-line OEL display, and a built-in equalizer. Each Sony NW-E Walkman ships with black or white earbud earphones for $70 (512MB), $100 (1GB), or $130 (2GB).
