New Sony Walkman pops up on UK retail site

New Sony Walkman pops up on UK retail site

The portable cassette players once nearly universally identified as the Walkman may have seen better days, but their spirit is still alive, so far as Sony is concerned. The company is apparently set to release the latest entry in the line, the slick-looking NWZA865B, a 16GB portable media player with wireless file sharing and music streaming capabilities. CNET points out that the device likely won’t have built-in WiFi, due to evidence from the FCC, which does seem to limit the aforementioned streaming options. The 16GB model is also likely one of a number of capacities to be offered, ranging from 8GB to 64GB. The device is available for viewing on UK retailer Buy.com with a £130 ($213) price tag and a July 31st release date.

Samsung’s new YP-MB2 is iPod Touch’s best rival yet.

August 17th, 2010

Samsung’s new YP-MB2 is iPod Touch’s best rival yet.

It seemed that Samsung is serious about challenging Apple. They already have a PMP running on Android. Now they’re giving their PMP a ‘Galaxy S’ look. With a 4-inch AMOLED screen, a glamorous 1GHz processor (is that really necessary?), 3MP camera, and Wi-Fi connectivity, we have a direct competitor to Apple’s iPod Touch! With the 3MP at the back, it’s even a competitor to the upcoming iPod Touch with FaceTime. Watch out Apple, somebody’s behind ya.

Philips GoGear Connect PMP got Android-ed, selling in UK

Philips GoGear Connect PMP got Android-ed

Yes we’ve seen lots of Android smartphones, and some tablets too. But PMP (Portable Music Player) running on Android is rather rare. Samsung was the first to load Android onto their Yepp-YP-MB2, but now Philips seemed to have followed their footsteps with their latest GoGear Connect PMP powered by Android too. It’s a rather nice direction to drop the proprietary OS in favour of Google’s offer, as things get more ‘global’ and much well taken care off instead of in-house development which might even cost more too.
