Was only reinforcing you news on the front as there's a debate going on that the new players will max @8gb. Even I got fooled by another site (head-fi!!!) so just making sure it stays straight!!!

They will def be 16gb, so maybe well see a A830 soon with 32Gb since the A series has been a step ahead of the S series so far

Sony really needs to do an overhaul with the UI of their players.

Ahh, kinda makes me wish I hadn't jumped on the A729 the day it came out :P
These things have a smaller screen, sure, but I love the size and aluminium casing!
Ahh well, I'm still happy with mine. Here's to hoping for a firmware update to bring it into line with the new models! :P

I can't wait to see what it will look like! I hope it isn't too radical of a change than the Walkmans of now though like the size and feel. Otherwise, that might get away from what we like the Walkman in the first place.

Default Serious disappoinment

NWZ-S638FREDWM new model is only 2.0'' ( measured diagonally) screen and 8GB only... (Why??? - Personally maybe they want to maintain price for competitive - just think the price for 16 gb is already damn expensive what would it cost for 32gb = double the price?)

The new features is
1) Sense me technology (Not practical at all - I would prefer gapless playback more) - I think Sony really cannot sense what we want for extra features so they create this to shut our mouth.
Wat the hell - I just notice this stupid sense me cost me extra USD 10. I think better rename to suck me technology as it sucks USD.

However there is
NWZ-E438FBLK without the suck me tech..

2) WMV support (nothing to brag abt especially it require a new model)

3) Increased batt life to 40hrs. Good but you are already the leader in this so up for wat???

Conclusion - I am sticking with my NWZ - A729. Really don't know how they want to compete with fruity new product lineup..

Check web below for details.

It really is a waste to upgrade to another model when it's really a downgrade. Your right, stay w/the A729.
