Well, if one comes down to brass tacks, there’s no abundance of up-to-date sophistication about this new MP3 USB-based player. The zapping function – which Sony Walkman actually inherits from Sony’s screenless players of old – allows you to find the desired track by playing a five-second middle passage from each tune. (Remember the scan mode in the radio in your car.) It would be a boon for anyone not having time or wish to consult the legend on the LCD.
Besides zapping it offers the bare possibilities of tuning to FM and voice recording.
There’s only 2GB storage at your service which looks a little scanty, and 18 hours of running on battery. If you’re in a hurry, charge it for three minutes to get an hour and a half of music supply. Sale details haven’t been given out yet.
