Sony S2 Sports Pre-order

News about the player surfaced a few weeks ago, but today Sony officially announced and opened pre-orders for their S2 Sports line of Walkman digital audio players. Following shortly after Apple's Nike+iPod Sport Kit, the S2 also tracks the stats of your runs and uses music to keep you motivated. What makes it unique is that there's no separate receiver needed. The S2 has a built-in sensor that detects your speed and can actually choose from playlists you've made depending on how fast you're moving. You won't have as much control or feedback due to the one-line OLED, though the small tube-shaped design will certainly make it easier to carry. Format support includes Sony's usual bevy of AAC, ATRAC3, MP3 and WMA audio files. If you're interested, Sony will ship both 1GB ($120) and 2GB ($150) versions in September.
