Sony Network Walkman A3000 + A1000

Hey sleepyheads and slackers—if you're like some of us who have a penchant for, um, sleeping in on a lazy Thursday morning, you might have missed Sony's latest entrant into the portable audio market. But wait, now there's even more info to check out, too. So in addition to what we know about the NW-A3000 and NW-A1000 players (we prefer NWA-3000/1000 playas, thanks), we now know the screen the A3000 will be packin' is a 2-inch OLED display, and that it's a little larger than we'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). Still more!

Network Walkman A600

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).
