Sony to bring Sports Walkman MP3 player to Europe

Sony Sports Walkman MP3 player

Sony has said it will ship its upcoming Sports Walkman-branded MP3 player line-up in Europe in September. The tubular device, which will ship in 1GB and 2GB versions, was announced in the US earlier this month.

The two European models are the NW-S203F and the NW-S205F. Both feature jogger-friendly features like a pedometer, a calorie-burn counter and a system that flips between two playlists – Walking and Running – according to your pace. The motion sensor that drives these functions is also used to control the player: shake it three times and it automatically reshuffles your songs.

Sony also touted the players’ three-minute fast-charge time, though it will only yield three hours’ playback time. If you want the full claimed 18-hour duration, you need to charge it up for 45 minutes, the company admitted.

Over here, the Sports Walkman range will be offered in three metallic colours: black, pink and silver. Every model has an integrated FM tuner. Made from aluminium, the players are “seamless and water-resistant” Sony claimed.

Sony didn’t say how much the players will cost, but we’d expect the 1GB model to be priced around £75 and the 2GB version at around £99. ®

  1. She told me that she had just signed up for sales training.
    Cater to this market and you just might have to raise your
    rates to keep up with demand for your services. Well, fortunately, a background in accounting means you have a solid, respectable foundation to a wide
    variety of careers, many of which pay extremely well.
