Sony Japan unleashed [JP] a total of 12 new Walkman today, split into three series (E, S, and A). Technically and design-wise, we get more of the same from the Walkman front, but some models look pretty neat. The players from the E and S series will hit Japanese stores on October 9, with the A Series following on November 13.
First Up, the entry-level is the E series device:
The E Series is Sony’s new entry model line-up. Buyers will be able to choose between the NW-E050 with 2GB or 4GB ($95/120, pictured on the left top of this post the black one) and the NW-E050K with the same storage options ($120/140). The main difference is that the E050K models come with a speaker (pictured in blue).
Next Up, the S Series:
There will be five models under the S series: The NW-S754 (8GB), the NW-S755 (16GB), and the NW-S756 (32GB) will be priced at $160/200/$230. The main difference between these and the two NW-S750K branded models is that the latter come with a cradle (8GB for $200, 16GB for $230). The picture above shows all colors the S series Walkman will be available in.
The A Series
Sony also showed three models under the flagship A series. These are the NW-A855 (16GB/$280), the NW-A856 (32GB/$350), and the NW-A857 (64GB/$470). These Walkman sport a 2.8-inch OLED screen with 240×400 resolution. The model in black is pictured above.
