Sony NW-A3000 / NW-A1000 / NW-A600

Hey sleepyheads and slackers—if you’re like me who have a penchant for, um, sleeping amidst technical innovation, you might have missed Sony’s latest entrant into the portable audio market. If they reign supreme in the market share before in the hedays days of walkman, right now they are trying to make habol iPod's huge chunk in the market by coming out these. Let's wait and see if they can really give an Apple a run for their money.

But wait, now there’s even more info to check out, too. So in addition to what I know about the NW-A300 and NW-A1000 players (I prefer NWA-3000/1000 playas, thanks), I now know the screen the A3000 will be packin’ is a 2-inch OLED display, and that it’s a little larger than I’d like at 2.5 x 4.1 x 0.84-inches (65.2 x 104.2 x 21.4mm); the A1000 (that’s their 1-inch drive version) will have a 1.5-inch OLED display, and both will feature "intelligent shuffle“(whatever that is, it simply means they're trying to knock off iPod Shuffle, tingan natin).

Sony’s also given an update to the Network Walkman NW-E series; it’s returning as the NW-A600 (over in Japan, anyway) with the 2GB A608, and 1GB A607 in a slew of colors—including limited edition gold (which did just so well for Apple) and emerald. They too will feature “Intelligent shuffle,” and will be priced between ¥25,000 - 32,000 ($225 - 290 US).
