Default new s series walkman!

i was browsing around the mall here in ottawa, and i popped into the sony store, aand i found the most interesting player that alot of people will definitely adore!

the new S-series walkman, not the 2.4 inch one but the sound cancelling series is here! from the box it still has the mickey mouse buttons, it has the 2 inch screen of the e series, but it comes with the new EX headphones. they only had the 16 gig in black but it was on promotional sale for 180! it looks like the A series from japan just smaller! it super thin and it has the wm-port unlike the e series with the mini usb, there you go for those who were waiting for that second part of the s-series, but the sony website doesn't say its there.

you mean this one?

Because the new S series does not have a 2.0" screen, I think the one you're talking about is the new E series:

nooo, its neither the previous generation model or the s544, i checked out the store and its the new s640, the only one they had was black in 16 gig capacity. it didn't have the noise cancellation but it does have the new EX headphones, as shown below i dont know if this is at any other store, but the sony store here in ottawa, in the mall has it

I like the player man, I can't lie, but the 2.0 in screen does it no justice. Video codec list is the same...and it does have tv out which is a major + IMO.

@320X240 it's a waste (as noted by Andreas in the front page article). Besides, no 64gb, no buy,..............
