Sony quietly slips out lipstick-sized Walkman

Sony E010 Walkman

Although making its second announcement with less fanfare than for the video-capable A800 line, Sony on Thursday has also introduced the E01 series of players. These sequels to last year's E00 models have a more conservative look but gain a three-line, color OLED with support for album art -- an unusual feature in its class. The audio-only flash jukebox plays AAC, ATRAC, MP3, and WMA songs for as long as 28 hours on a single charge and (as before) plugs directly into a USB port for charging and music sync.

Unlike the A800, the E01 series is split by features as well as by storage: the 1GB E013F and 2GB E015F both have FM radios, while the basic E013 and E015 go without. Prices and ship dates for the Walkman range haven't been revealed, suggesting a release further ahead than the April launch of the larger devices introduced today.
