Default Sony walkman firmware upgrade to v1.02 available (NWZ- A/E/S series)

To all Sony fans, firmware download available for download below link:
http://www.sony.com.my/support/downl...729/modelfirst

Pls READ CAREFULLY THE INSTRUCTION ON THE WEBPAGE B4 PROCEED.

The only function added is it support itunes.
Drag file from itunes and drop it to the content transfer window to use.
I am kind of disappoint as the upgrade is too minor compare to Samsung P2 and Sansa Fuze or clip firmware upgarade.

Since this is ABI, Sony walkman support Itunes now so for those who hate Ipod touch / Nano but like the Itune software can now hop over.
ENJOY!!!!!!

PS - I haven't tried it though as I use Media monkey.
- Media Manager 1.2 I think its bugged so beware.

This is from the Sony/Malaysia site. It says it's for the NWZ-A729, NWZ-A726, NWZ-A728 versions of the player only.

I'm wondering if it DOES add any additional features tho. That would be great: custom themes, wallpaper, etc. I doubt it, but I didn't get past reading what players it's for.

content explorer is kinda nice to have. nice visual representation of how space is used on the device. the 30+mb download is a bit bloated though. the memory resident detector executable manages to be more bloated than apples:P grew to ~7mb so far on mine. the contenttransfer.exe that loads when the walkman is connected uses 14+mb

What if you have the NWZ-A728B model? No benefit from this upgrade other then using iTunes?

Also I wonder what Gadget for Vista means?



Edit: Ok stupid me. The B stands for Black correct?

I would like to see an update that removes the Best Buy Music Store splash screen.
