Sony Walkmans on Amazon

Amazon has posted Sony's NWZ-X1000-series Walkman multimedia players on its UK webstore, revealing their prices and approximate dates of availability. The two devices, each equipped with a 3-inch OLED touchscreen display with 432x240 resolution, are aimed squarely at the iPod Touch and Samsung P3. The NWZ-X1050B has a built-in 16GB drive and is priced at the equivalent of $305 while the larger 32GB NWZ-X1060B version costs about $403. The site promises either should ship to customers in two to five weeks.

To recap, the new Walkmans feature a Wi-Fi module that lets users browse the web, download podcasts and watch YouTube videos. A unique feature is their entirely digital noise-canceling feature that keeps costs down. Either device ships with in-ear EX headphones. Both support AAC, MP3 and WMA audio files along with MPEG-4, H.264 and WMV videos. [via Erich]
