Sony Bean

Someone alert Mr. Atkinson, Sony's answer to the shuffle—wait, didn't they kind of already have a number of answers to the shuffle?—is here, and we kid you not, it's called the Walkman Bean. The device features a 1 line OLED display, fast-charging li-ion battery (which they claim will pull 3 hours of playtime from a 3 minute charge—probably for ATRAC), multiple colors, a 512MB (NW-E205), 512 +FM (NW-E305), and 1GB (NW-E207) versions, and the usual ATRAC/SonicStage crapolla we're uneasily used to.
